in thread I'm all for the type of job posting Skip Huffman made

I don't think it is right to be critical of someone's post simply due to spelling errors, typos, or poor hyperlinks.

True. But also, misspelling the same name for six years, and linking offsite for six years even though he's been told countless times, it means real lack of respect for the community or for the people living in it.

Besides, metaperl (a.k.a. princepawn) faults are far beyond spelling. He's being abusing people for years. And while that could be excusable if you are a true wizard (à la meryln), it's really insufferable behaviour from somebody whose sole distinguished feature is sloppiness and cargo cult coding.

    Please explain why it is acceptable for merlyn (which you misspelled BTW ;) to abuse people more than it is for metaperl?

    I actually just had a discussion with a co-worker this morning about what kind of people make good employees, and IMO "ability to play well with others" is very high on the list.

    In short, I don't care how much of a "wizard" you are, an a**hole is an a**hole, and I will never hire one no matter how "good" they are.

    Disclaimer: I am not calling anyone an a**hole in this post. I don't know merlyn, and have no opinion on him besides his code. I do know metaperl a little better though, and while he has been known to rub people the wrong way, my assessment is that overall he is not a bad guy. But that is just my opinion, nothing more nothing less.
