in thread The current state of Perl6

Indeed, IBlowGoatsSucker, I realized I am not going to get a Perl job and I'm moving back to COBOL. You seem to be stalking/monitoring me which is nice, I like you :) We should hang out and troll together, what do you say ?

    Who is stalking who here? And I do not believe you about the COBOL. You say you will go back to COBOL, but in a private message to me you say

    hi, you seem to have a lot of free time on your hands, instead of trolling perlmonks I suggest we write some Perl code together, what do you think ? :)

    So you are a liar as well as a dickhead (in your own words and currently the highest ranking dickhead in PERL according to Google) and you will sadly not give up on Perl. I also decline because I am here for the trolltrolling, not the perlwriting.

    Come on, let's go to COBOL together - I haven't liked the direction Perl has taken for a long time, and most of the perl 6 developers, especially Chromatic, who is some sort of Perl diva -- one word name? Who are you, Cher? Anyway, you are not alone - there's a lot of people who don't like the direction perl has taken since ~2000.

      chromatic talks a lot and babbles a lot and writes this huge pieces of stuff that are completely irrelevant and stupid.

      me I'm a practical man, I don't like babbling, if I say I did something I'll show some code, I think the best articles are ones which try to keep a code/explanations ratio above 3/10 or 4/10 , but chromatic wants to take that down to something like 1/100 where his stuff is like reading some sort of novel ...

      that's the big problem, software is not about writing stuff like that, it's about practical things, not "epistemiological" discussions. I mean nobody will read that, maybe some close friends of chromatic who enjoy debating the philosophy of the match stick, or the phisolophy of the philosphy lol.

      I read his blog sometimes and I'm amazed when I see like 3-4 comments to a completely weird and lame article, I ask myself man... these people had nothin better to do than comment chromatic's article... such a waste

      really.. it's just lame. and with all that lame stuff he's trying to put together a book. he's like saying "hey wanna buy my collection of useless stuff,cause I wanna sell it man and there better be some readers out there 'cause otherwise this stuff ain't gonna go well, and I need to get some stuff outta' my babblings ??"

      I've read some books and I can surely say that his books are too verbose to be useful. Chromatic needs to write code in order to get material for a book. If he's writing lame code then there ain't no way in hell he's gonna gather up material fro a book. If you do lame stuff you can't expect to get teh awesomeness out of it, it's still going to be lame.

      the problem is that the dude needs someone to tell him hey, you're lame, stop it, just stop it, it's enough. but he probably gets all this encouragement or just likes seeing his name on books

      Chromatic and some other guys like him(guys that are so excited and make such a big fuss/hype about features that are taken for granted in many other languages) are the reason Perl is plummeting with an astounding speed and it will mark its end as a language, just becuase one guy, or better said a couple of guys decided to "revive" Perl by implementing stuff that's already here for lots of other languages and making a big fuss out of it. That's just lame

      Perl needs to differ itself from other languages, you can't just come and say "Hey we can now iterate with 2 iterators over an array" and expect all programmers to be like "Wooohaaa man you're a god !!!" . What the f*** is that ?? Or "We just implemented OOP properly in Perl, how awesome is that !!!?!!? " and expect reactions like "Man, these guys are f*cking geniuses" I mean almost every language out there has this stuff already, Perl is not brining anything new.

      I mean Perl is a nice language but with these lepers around like chromatic and some other guys that are pulling it very hard down to the very bottom.. it will soon disappear.

      It's already extremely hard to have a community-driven language today. Heavy money must be invested in one and the Perl community surely does not have that, it needs to differ by something else.
