in reply to RFC: Looking for "CPAN Trivia" and "Bizarre Tales of the CPAN"

In last year's june/july there was some dispute about the Class::DBI module.

See schwern's journal entry, the Class::DBI::Frozen::301 module by sri, this blog entry (»Will Class::DBI fork?«), and the Acme::Class::DBI::NoThreats module (neither on CPAN nor BackPAN).

There was also some legal discussion about participation on mailing lists, like this one (from the old Class::DBI mailinglist):

*** was told he was temporarily banned from the list. He proceeded to re-subscribe anyway. In the UK, that is indeed a criminal offence. I've invited him to comment on this, but if he does not do so, I shall have little option but to proceed with reporting this matter to the Police.

Unfortunately most of these things were deleted from the web (modules, list archives, blog entries etc.)

[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
[Discipulus]: you are right 1nickt i didnt voted nor downvoted; I just upvote perl content i like
[1nickt]: In Spanish, to argue (like a fight) is discutir -- does not mean to discuss !
[1nickt]: Sigh, this is why I gave up human-only languages and became a Perl linguist :-)
[Discipulus]: i just, rarely, downvote unpolite posts and spam, and wrong advices
[Discipulus]: discutere in eatalian is neutral: but discutere with wife sounds implicitly negative..
[erix]: what's the offending signature?
