in reply to How to ask a question in the Perl community, and where to ask it

I grew tired of this entire meme at least a week ago. Now, it's pissing me off to no apparent end. I wish I could say this has been beaten to death over the past few weeks but that would imply it has stopped.

Life is short. Shorter for some than others. Life is hard. Harder for some than others. Time being the most valuable commodity each of us have, do you really want to expend yours passing torches and pitch forks (Or creating involved flow charts) over what hurt pride?

I'm sorry for whatever hurt you to this degree that has expended so much of your time and energy. You have a strong opinion on how people should be treated. My suggestion, treat others in that manner yourself and walk away from people (or lists or irc channels or Tuesday quilting groups) who you feel don't.

Good luck,
Luis

    Hear, hear.

    I attended a leadership coaching class a couple of weeks ago, and the coach made a very astute observation that really brings things into perspective:

    "You have as much time as there is..."

    The underbar to this was: "How do you want to spend it?"
