I recently read Newest Nodes and saw there was a post apparently concerning the shortcomings of a specific CPAN module. Since I use CPAN extensively and do not have the time to accurately vet all the modules on there myself, I clicked on the post to see what it was about.
What I found took was a BIG surprise,IT WAS A COMPLETE AND UTTER PILE OF SELFIMPORTANT CRAP!
I mean, theauthor seems to have a habit of spouting off a bit, but this was even worse than usual!
- Factual incorrectness
- Completely unnecessary
- Didn't even take the time to properly formulate his arguments (expository introduction is longer than list of arguments)
- Possibly contains "hidden" agenda, not properly documented
And all that we could have done without !
