in reply to What is "aggressive" argument?


You are accused of being aggressive in the negative sense.

My sense, from a number of years of experience, is that you are prone to being needlessly contentious. You elect confrontational language on slight provocation. You do normally include substantive technical content, but it's effectiveness is lessened by the static around it.

You are not unique in this weakness. One can hope that by asking, you are hoping to discern more clearly and, perhaps, modify your approach. "Someone is wrong on the Internet" leaps to mind. Been there, drank the Kool Aid. I'd like to think I've gotten better (mostly).

[choroba]: Just use List::Util 1.29
[choroba]: Be kind to people using old Perl with newer version of the module
[Corion]: But why not simply specify 'List::Util' => 1.29 in your prerequisites? People might install a more recent version of the module into their Perl
[Corion]: (what choroba said)
[Discipulus]: ah! simpler and cleaner
[Discipulus]: thanks! use List::Util 1.29 qw(pairmap ... just works!
Discipulus is preparing another of his CUFP..
