Too many people have invested too much ... for any kind of reasonable discussion to take place.
Do you really expect to have a reasonable discussion with people to whom you ascribe of base financial motives, hostile intent to take over communities, crippling inabilities to finish projects, socially inept and almost criminal dishonesties?
I've been working on Parrot for eight years and Perl 6 for seven. Of course I care about them. You don't have to like it and you certainly don't have to care, but you spend an awful lot of time complaining about me and how I choose to spend my time and speculating about why. Maybe we'd have a reasonable discussion if you asked me why I do this sometime and treated me like a reasonable human being with a complex and rich set of motivations, rather than some mustache-twirling villain who cackles as he plots with a bunch of other ignorant, inept conspirators to destroy Perl 5, somehow.
Oh, and I patched the Perl 5 documentation today in between making Parrot and Rakudo a little faster. You're welcome. This one's on the house.
