Ok, then i have no fsckin idea wtf you are up to...(not that i really + care either) -- sebastian

OK, so shutting down the mailing-list and the wiki may have been a bit extreme, but I would have kicked someone off of my mailing-list in a heartbeat if I had gotten an email like what is above. There seems to be a lot of "Poor me! Poor me!" going on, but a simple fact remains. Tony donated a lot of time and resources to the Class::DBI community. He's a volunteer! Would you volunteer for the crap that's gone on today? Probably not.

The above email is from here

    If I am using someone's CPAN module, I am showing him/her my kindness and merciness, and it is ythat person should feel overjoyed not me, to be frank, none of those modules are non-replaceable, or can not be written by myself.

      Come again? So what you're saying is that if I write a module, I should be happy that anyone's using it at all and moreover I should be so happy that I be willing to put up with a shit ton of grief from you and other users. least you've got the arrogance base covered.


      Feel the white light, the light within
      Be your own disciple, fan the sparks of will
      For all of us waiting, your kingdom will come
