My better judgement says I shouldn't reply to this at all but... you appear to be quoting me:
"just so I could steal peoples work to get a job by cheating"
I never said that. In fact, I am the one in IRC that gave you the benefit of the doubt when others thought you intended to be unscrupulous. What I was addressing is:
- You did indeed get the problem from the job ad
- You did indicate you intended to apply for that position saying that you would use the fact you were a Saint at PerlMonks to your advantage
- You posted the question here without reference to the first two points
This all transpired on Freenode's #perl of which I do not log. Should you want to dispute any of this I am sure someone has these logs and it will be easy to determine. I certainly would not have said shame on you for anything if you had just acknowledged this when you posted.
