in reply to The Personalities of Perl Monks - Part I

I've generally found that one or more of the Flame Warriors provides a reasonably accurate description of any active member of any online community that I've ever seen. PerlMonks is not an exception to this rule.

Incidentally I'd suggest avoiding discussion of which people fit which descriptions. Either from the Flame Warriors or the descriptions that you gave. While Robert Burns might wish that, O wad some po’er the gift tae gie us, tae see oursel’s as aithers see us, attempts to assist other people to such vision does not tend to be received very well...

    It did occur to me, but I quickly thought better of it.

    I've also resisted a further gentle nudge, not that I'm the protector of fragile psyches or anything.

    Wish I'd seen the flame warriors before, thanks for the link.
