I think your reasons for not discussing people is not only paranoid but wrong. Without people there is no Perl. I can understand not wanting to cause a flamewar talking about someone but thats life; if someone cannot control themselves when talking about others that will probably extends into other parts of their life as well.

Focusing upon Perl does not make them a better or a more rounded person you are just ignoring them in other ways in the hope of not offending anyone. Think about the people involved, Larry Wall, Damain Conway, chromatic... They are here, and while not always visible, they do help contribute and guide the community. They are what make Perl fun and I find them infinitely more interesting. Perl is just the reason people got together; it is not the reason we keep coming back.

    [davido]: And remember; time is hard. :) As soon as you think, I've got this, you'll discover that time is harder than that. :)
    [1nickt]: TCLion are you parsing the dates with DateTime or another tool?
    [1nickt]: I note DateTime::Format:: Flexible, announced immediately below this box in the CPAN feed
    [Corion]: 1nickt: That one sounds sensible as it will tell you when it found an error
    [1nickt]: Throws on error, I believe
    [1nickt]: But should handle month as number or word
