I just want to say that I'm offended immensely that my comments from a casual conversation where I don't think too much about what I say have now been recorded in perpetuity as a node for people to comment on and challenge.
in reply to Java vs. Perl from the CB (no CB log included)
We have all agreed not to maintain public logs of the chatterbox. I thought I was speaking in a safe environment, and would have spoken with more care and thought
had I known I was going to be publicly logged.
I demand this node be removed, as it violates the "no public logs of the chatterbox" rule.
-- Randal L. Schwartz, Perl hacker
Update: I'm not objecting to my specific comments in this log, but rather the principle of violation of "no public CB logs". Had jptxs asked for my permission to post my comments, I probably would have been happy to give it after a quick review. As it is now, jptxs has violated a public agreement, and I demand accountability for that.
Update 2: Thank you for removing my comments. And I hope this little scuffle brings us to an explicit understanding about the rules of operation. vroom will have to arbitrate the rule as to the permission for public logging, and I will live with his decision to permit public logs or not.
