Agreed. ask++ Dissenters need a break too.

A *real* troll would have made the post personal in some way. I'll pile on a bit since the window's open. Watch my karma drop! :)

In a way, I agree with him/her. Dan's contributions are very solid, concrete, he's doing something. He's writing code that will be practical one day -- it'll get used as the base for a real language I'm sure, if not the Wolkenkuckucksheim Perl.

Damian's contributions are of a far less practical nature. His modules tend to be more academic and interesting than practical. (And his practical modules are updated far too infrequently.) To be honest: if it's not practical, then I'm not paying for it.

I've attended a few of his talks, and they're very entertaining. Being in the midwest my opportunity to actually see one of these is generally limited to my YAPC pilgrimmage. I get to see him fly overhead an awful lot. And his monthly travelogues are worth the money. Wait, no they're not.

Larry is a sensitive point: anything less than a glowing opinion will cause crateloads of rotting onions to show up in my mailbox I'm sure. He is more active now on the Perl 6 lists. That's nice. Apocalypses are still too far between though for my tastes though. As far as his ORA situation, well, times are tough all over. I'm more ambivalent than anything else about Larry's situation. *shrugs* (He's a really, really nice guy though!)
