in thread RAM: It isn't free . . .

After annoying us by repeatedly replying to the wrong post he has finally done it to himself!

He does it so often it must surely be a deliberate tactic yet I cannot fathom the reason behind it. Has anyone been able to decipher the (surely profound) meaning behind this mysterious "reply to the wrong post" tactic?

    The idea appears to be that if the intended target of his post doesn't get a "you've a reply" /msg, then it may take longer for them to reply to it.

    And the longer the post goes without a response, the more likely it is to pick up a few stray upvotes from those that either don't actually read the posts they upvote, or are fooled by his "style" into believing he has something to contribute.

    Do you think that the Perl foundation would fund giving this guy a commission (via an undisclosed third party), in order to discover just how little he knows?

    MS are (finally) starting to fund the taking down of those "We're MS support and we've detected you've got a virus" scam companies. Maybe Perl should do a little housekeeping too.

      Whatever is going on, or has been, I object to this vilification. I have never detected a hint of malevolence or any of the three would-be pillars described on that wiki page.

        I concur. What is happening now is essentially cyber-bullying, and it should stop.

        If one feels such a way about another poster, then apply the troll rule. (Namely: Ignore, don't feed.)

        I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

        The belive in the own grandiosity as well the permanent attention seeking is narcissistic. And causing confusion, trouble, irritation and annoyance year in, year out is anti-social.

        Hmm, spamming for profit, not malevolent?
