As a matter of fact, I'm nearly proud of negative votes. On one hand, it's sad for me that my post wasn't taken as it is (and, as a matter of fact, I DO NOT use a bot for my PM experience); on the other, I thought it really was a Cool Use For Perl and I'm happy to have posted it. I still think that the fact that I've talked about this CUFP should be a clue of the fact that I like *doing* Perl and *sharing* my experience on WWW::Mechanize more than just setting up a bot, but I also understand that humour is not perceived in the same way as me by other people, in particular when many different (and surely respectable) cultures are involved. The only thing I can say is "sorry", if I've offended anyone, which I hope is not the case.
Please be free to track my account (you can see the IPs from which I connect) to see my previous days of activity and the ones to come. You'll find that I enjoy posting as much as voting, which is something that a bot would make with some difficulty.
As to reporting to gods of the multiple account, I was sure that the joke itself would be sufficient - do you know a more direct way? Anyway, thank you for not just droppin' a "--" without explanation: at least, I've learnt something about how to behave in the future within this community.
