in thread A logo for Perl

sadly there is no interest and i'm giving up now, the logos will not get finished.

I'm sorry to hear that, I think your design showed a lot of promise. Is this a case of nobody in a position of influence wanting to hurt Larry's feelings? Because the current logo is just awful. Unprofessional, ugly, it reinforces many of the unfortunate negative stereotypes about perl that I hear from other programmers. And I really think the official logo for Perl 6 should really be something that's open to debate

    No; plenty of people have expressed opinions of Camelia both pro and con. (I like Camelia, and not only because it annoys people to the point of threatening never to use Perl 6.)

    I really think the official logo for Perl 6 should really be something that's open to debate.

    Go ahead and debate it with Larry then. Good luck.

[Discipulus]: and anyway we have CB where every (democratic) opinion can be expressed
erix eat the rich!
[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
[Discipulus]: you are right 1nickt i didnt voted nor downvoted; I just upvote perl content i like
[1nickt]: In Spanish, to argue (like a fight) is discutir -- does not mean to discuss !
[1nickt]: Sigh, this is why I gave up human-only languages and became a Perl linguist :-)
[Discipulus]: i just, rarely, downvote unpolite posts and spam, and wrong advices
[Discipulus]: discutere in eatalian is neutral: but discutere with wife sounds implicitly negative..
