For the record, I have not in the past, nor do I intend in the future, to post anonymously on this issue.

    To be clear on my part, I chose people I did not think wrote that post, but did help make my point that there are legitimate reasons for posting anonymously. My apologies for any misunderstandings.

    Elda Taluta; Sarks Sark; Ark Arks

      The people you listed are known for their ability to be effective. Anonymous venting and "calling out" is rarely, if ever, effective at causing change, so I would surmise that the author of that post is not among that group. Besides some are gods themselves and all have personal relationships with senior people at the Perl Foundation, so they have much better avenues to get their point across.

      I called for the person to step out from anonymity because I want them to be effective. Of course there are legitimate reasons for posting anonymously. But if this person really wants to make a difference, then he/she needs to step out and speak in his/her own voice.

      Best, beth

[M4ver1k]: I feel like being able to toggle a running script on the fly by updating variables from a config file using Config::Simple. But in the while loop, it seems like it doesn't update the variable after the first past. Is this generally just a bad idea?
