I am sorry chromatic. I'll understand if this isn't believed, but I did not intend to misrepresent your view. Far from it. My intent in the chat was to ensure Patrick responded to what seemed to me to be criticisms you were making that seemed to warrant a response: ignoring your warnings, unnecessary regressions, and broken commitments.
I clearly screwed up with the quotes. I had pretty much quit posting on the Internet for a decade, and I am clearly making mistakes as I reconnect. The realtime nature of IRC means I didn't review what I was doing. I realize that this will be hard to believe but what I meant was something akin to "I would summarize chromatic said ...".
Anyhow, that's such a monumental cockup that it's obvious to me that I need to shutup. I'll let Patrick know your response and quit posting here. Thanks PerlMonks for this resource. I will return to reading and not writing.
