in reply to how did this module get into CPAN ?!

I recently read Newest Nodes and saw there was a post apparently concerning the shortcomings of a specific CPAN module. Since I use CPAN extensively and do not have the time to accurately vet all the modules on there myself, I clicked on the post to see what it was about.

What I found took was a BIG surprise,IT WAS A COMPLETE AND UTTER PILE OF SELFIMPORTANT CRAP!

I mean, theauthor seems to have a habit of spouting off a bit, but this was even worse than usual!

Arguments summary:

  • Factual incorrectness
  • Completely unnecessary
  • Didn't even take the time to properly formulate his arguments (expository introduction is longer than list of arguments)

  • Possibly contains "hidden" agenda, not properly documented

And all that we could have done without !


All dogma is stupid.
