In this reddit post I have quoted you and said:
I'll start with some empathy. Actually I'll go one better: sympathy. In the context of discussions about Perl 6 sundialsvc4 has in the past emphasized how big and complex the world's Perl 5 codebase is; how its ecosystem ought not be unduly disturbed without good reason; how the bottom line for the Perl community is getting stuff done; how Perl 6 has done an E17 (my term, not his); and how it's a really, really, really tall order for Perl 6 to do anything useful for the Perl 5 community. In general I agree with all these points and support folk continuing to emphasize them.
But I had other things to say too. I care about this deeply and would appreciate it if you would be willing to take a look at the reddit post, perhaps mull it overnight, and consider my requests for ideas and restraint.
Thanks for contributing to this discussion with humor even if it is a little acerbic. ;)
