Stay classy, #perl6. The strategy of telling potential users that they're wrong for what they're asking for will surely someday work.
I am not #perl6. I've posted on there a handful of times.

I have NOT said you are wrong to effectively ask Perl 6 friends to avoid posting about Perl 6 at Perl Monks until it's achieved a level of usability and usefulness that you pronounce acceptable. I have tried to encourage you to see its folly, and to consider your career 5 years from now.

I deleted the "Ever hear of projection?" phrase a few seconds after I posted it (sorry you caught it) but I stand by it; do you not see how saying "press release which trumpets loudly that eschaton is immanent" is both claiming exaggeration on my part and an exaggeration of what this Meditation really is?

    I don't see why not; you're clearly content to smear that implication all over your post. That's not only dishonest, it's rude.

    I have tried to encourage you to ... consider your career 5 years from now.

    That's condescending, and really none of your concern.

    ... an exaggeration of what this Meditation really is?

    Put some meaning behind those statistics then. A chart without clear labels on both axes is chartjunk. See my first post in this thread for questions you've ignored in favor of logical fallacies, ad hominem nonsense, and condescending armchair psychoanalysis.
