Re: Ovid's take on the renaming of "Perl6"by footpad (Abbot)

Parenthetically, one paragraph stands out to me:
Recall that Ovid is one of the most senior members of the site, even though he is no longer as active as he once was. (As of this writing, he logged in yesterday, so it's clear he's lurking at the very least.)
This ideal of acceptance is one of the foundations that helped the site survive as long as it has.
There are many differing views in currently-active threads. A few gentle and constructive; others...less so.
Ultimately, we're here to learn and advocate Perl...and in the spirit of TIMTOWTDI, let's let individual monks figure out what that means for themselves. OK?
Speaking for myself, it's more fun/productive to learn, rather than watch people fight/snark.
That's my take; YMMV.
