|Welcome to the Monastery|
It is 1:16 in Malaysia where I am, so I will definitely stop after this. :)
12kashe, you're right that I should not have let the posters before me, who were attacking me personally, get me riled. Just water under th bridge right?
You are right in this.
Unfortunately, I am just so sick and tired of this kind've post and needed a bit of vent.
Sadly, it is the lack of respect that you state as being foundational to the community which I believe was there in the beginning but which is no longer there, that has finally driven me out of the perl community altogether.
The irony is that I was just speaking to an old time friend who was trying to convince me in his own way, to come back and I was actually thinking about it.
Then I get unsolicited mail from one of the monks telling me to read this thread. So I did, and it really hurt my feelings.
So, fine. I reacted poorly, you are right. Nevertheless, I have other things to do.
Next time, when someone starts a thread about someone else's work as "Ignorant" maybe you will step in a bit sooner beacuse, regardless of the fact that I should not have 'continued' it, it was lack of respect that started this.
