Hopefully things can stay this friendly. CLPMisc has gotten scary. Nearly to the point where nearly everything is flamebait. I hope this site can remain friendly to the newbie. Perl can only benefit from a good attitude towards newbies.

There's more than one way to do it, just don't use my way.

comp.lang.perl.misc "getting worse" (was, beginner resources)

    You know, people have been making this observation for the last 5 or 6 years now (See my TPJ article on the subject).

    I think to say that a Usenet news group seems to be "getting worse" is like saying that you walked to school in the snow, uphill -- both ways.

      The fact that people have been making an observation does not make it wrong.

      Though I wouldn't know how much the observation has been true in the last 4 years. I got tired of observing the downwards trend first-hand and left Usenet then. Since then my only Usenet posts have been email lists that got echoed to Usenet.

      I don't think I said it got any worse. I did say "gotten scary" which I suppose could be construed as getting worse and I don't care to fight over words. Scary/Worse OK. But seems to me since the "Knitting Female" changed to the "Tokyo Lizard" things have gotten, well, scarier. In no way is it related to "it" that "lives under bridges" but I merely use the above event as a time frame for when I noticed an attitude change.

      I took a bus to school ;)
