in reply to Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 15: RPerl v1.2 Kickstarter Now Live

In spite all the negative comments I've seen here, I see the eventual goal of Will's team is to make all the magic work in a more highly optimized manner. It seems most monks are picking at nits and not looking at the materials Will has presented fairly. (But the one-page style web site doesn't help matters I admit.) I commend your work, Will, and wish you continued support.

BTW, if you follow Perl 6 you will see Jonathan is delivering lots of valuable code for the project.

    (Strangely) Any publicity is good publicity.

    Far more people got somehow involved now. =)

    Are they so negative?

    The root problem is that Will doesn't seem to be experienced with board discussions or even like them.

    All his 150 posts so far were related to his project only.

    (Here his first post: Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler)

    So my impression is:

    • He's quickly loosing passion when people ask stuff that is somewhere hidden in his webpage.
    • He seems to feel attacked where a dialog could produce profitable insights for all sides.
    • And he doesn't seem to know how to link to older dialogs, when it starts to be redundant.
    • Last but not least, he seems to perceive us as a monolithic block. Many regulars here are special, too. (Tolerance is not a one way street)

    And while most of us are very positive about new approaches, we can't easily tolerate posts with buzz words in high frequency (this borders to spam)

    This is a discussion board after all, if he posts here he should not be surprised to evoke discussions and shouldn't in return start to accuse people.

    Maybe you should help him improving his PR strategy?

      I would but I'm afraid my track record for PR is pretty miserable!
