Class::DBI mailing list meltdown
I like Tony's work and use it every day. I like Tony personally. Taking your ball home when a few kids don't act the way you want is an option but it doesn't make you look good. He broke/404ed many links I've put here and there recommending and advertising how much I like CDBI. There are many more developers out there who are grateful for the work and software than who are critical and whiny.
I had to fight to convince my last contracting manager that CDBI was a good way to go for a project. It was, and still is, but I probably couldn't convince him of it today if he was privy to the meltdown. Pulling the wiki's plug hurt a lot more "innocents" than it punished "offenders." I am sad.
