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?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
