      Click the Late, Fat and Ugly link.

      It nice of you to assume I didn't, that still doesn't explain your stupid message. You want chromatic to STFU because he is burning his bridges with perl6??? Maybe you've read Waiting for a Product, not a Compiler

        Maybe you've read Waiting for a Product, not a Compiler
        Yes, I read that the day he posted it. As I'm sure did many other monks interested in... Moose.

        My conclusion is that chromatic is "Waiting for a Product, not a Compiler", just as I conclude is true of Wendell Hatcher (try spotting the request for feedback on a Perl6 Hague Grant in this list; hint, it has 16 messages).

        Is it any wonder that Perl 6 is more starved for fresh volunteers and enthusiasts than can be reasonably explained by fatigue? It would be far better for Perl 6 posts to suffer Warnock's dilemma than this continual misguided "tough love" (to be charitable) and trolling.

        You want chromatic to STFU because he is burning his bridges with perl6???
        No. I don't want chromatic to STFU.

        I hope chromatic will hear that I think repeatedly responding to "hey, glass is half full!" with "ah, but it's half empty!" turns people away from helping fill the glass, even if it's true that the half-fullers don't seem to be being mathematically rigorous about how much water is in the glass, and even if he ended up thirsty because he thought there was more water in the glass.

        Fwiw, assuming I'm right that he's burning bridges (which may well be just in my imagination), I expect there'll always be bridges, because the Perl 6 community, reflecting Larry's character, not mine, would help him build new ones.
