sundialsvc4 not posting code isn't the problem. He argues alot of theory and pedagogy and he makes you think twice if your current code or current design the best one you can use.

    I personally like some of sundialsvc4's insight (as always in life though, I don't agree with all of it), but thanks to this being Perl, there's always Tim Toady ;)

    With that said, given this is a site about programming Perl, and that we are almost all here to see code, I believe that code wins arguments.

    Were it the case, I'd be upvoting rather than downvoting him.

    Trouble is, most of the time, he's not providing the service of a quick reality check, but rather the disservice of a bum steer down a blind alley of long redundant, archaic knowledge.

    And for the record, there are at least 100 other unique examples, and many, despite-corrections, repetitions I can cite.


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
    "Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    The start of some sanity?

      fwiw, I love your 'stand-up-ed-ness' and blatant honesty. Goes without saying that it is awesome knowing that you can back up everything you say with fact. Kudos bro.
