Calling someone with a legitimate grievance a 'troll' simply because they make their point forcefully is simply inaccurate.
I agree that this site is maintained by volunteers. I humbly thank you all for the years of effort that you have donated. I and everyone else here have enjoyed the free ride.
I will point out that "free ride" means a very low expectation level.
But are we not all software developers? Do we not practice what we preach? I do not expect us to provide the same level of service that a bank does - in a way I want MORE - since we are trying to set an example to follow.
But again, 'volunteers' means that I do not get to expect that - as much as I would like it to be so.
However - that the volunteers had the time to modify the voting and experience system but no time for security - is a damned shame.
It is more embarrassing still when I read in TheRegister that maybe people will not trust perl as much because of this.
That strikes me as a larger problem.
So has anyone volunteered their time to work on security & fix the barn doors after the horses have eaten our children?
Wait! This isn't a Parachute, this is a Backpack!
