Re^5: What operator should perl5porters use for safe dereferencing?by BrowserUk (Pope)

trying to compare mixes of the words with letter substitutions is fruitless.
If you had read the post to which I was responding, you'd have realised that that is exactly the point I was making!
Did you actually read all the way down to the third line of my post where I said:
(You cannot break multi-character operators into bits to try and make sense of them!)
So before you jump to conclusions, read not just one post and then respond, but also the context in which that post was made.
That is absurd.
What I did -- emphasis the illogical through parody -- was eminently logical.
What you did -- take a post out-of-context, and build an argument around your own misinterpretation of it -- was absurd.
But don't feel too bad about it; you are not the first, nor will you be the last to do so.
The only thing you should watch out for, is the temptation to compound your mistake, by trying to defend it.

In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
