in thread How many man-hours would you estimate you have invested in learning Perl?

Maybe you'd have an easier time understanding the people here who are saying "This makes me feel uncomfortable" if you listened to them instead of trying to outdo yourself mocking a caricature that doesn't represent anyone.

How is writing:

... everyone else is required to run away screaming and bring jewels and flowers to appease the self appointed goddess.

... supposed to help the situation?

There are jokes about everyone all over the place....

Why should that matter? We're talking about a very specific comment in this thread to which several people have said "This makes me feel less welcome in the Perl community." Is it even relevant that in other places other people say horrible things?

Or did they find out that screaming will get them attention and special treatment?

Who's screaming? Is claiming that anyone is screaming supposed to help the situation?

[Corion]: I'm looking into Firefox Accounts (to self-host bookmark synchronization, among other things) and the one thing I like about their documentation is that they include test vectors for ...
