in reply to I'm all for the type of job posting Skip Huffman made

Hi all,

I have read the thread of postings in response to this posting about Skip Huffman's job posting. I have a few questions/comments:

  • What is the controversy over this post? Is the controversy that Skip Huffman's posting appears to be a posting for a job where the initial form of compensation would solely be equity in his business venture and no pay check? Or is the controversy that it is a job posting at all and not really a question/comment about Perl?
  • What is being proposed in this discussion? Are we proposing a separate section for job postings/career opportunities?
  • Additionally, I don't think it is right to be critical of someone's post simply due to spelling errors, typos, or poor hyperlinks. We're all human, we all make these kinds of mistakes

I fully support the idea of constructing a new page within the Perl Monks web site for job/postings/career opportunities. Additionally, I don't have a problem with a posting for a job whose initial compensation would be equity in the given business. We're all adults here; each of us can decide for ourselves whether a given opportunity is a good idea or a good fit. For that matter some one could provide work for a company for free if he or she liked -- although I myself like the whole getting compensated thing -- as does the bank that holds my mortgage.

Additionally, I'd like to see a page for groups/companies that provide training/education. I am often looking for one form of training or another so a technical training page for companies that provide training would be great.

Well, that's my two cents

    True. But also, misspelling the same name for six years, and linking offsite for six years even though he's been told countless times, it means real lack of respect for the community or for the people living in it.

    Besides, metaperl (a.k.a. princepawn) faults are far beyond spelling. He's being abusing people for years. And while that could be excusable if you are a true wizard (à la meryln), it's really insufferable behaviour from somebody whose sole distinguished feature is sloppiness and cargo cult coding.

      Please explain why it is acceptable for merlyn (which you misspelled BTW ;) to abuse people more than it is for metaperl?

      I actually just had a discussion with a co-worker this morning about what kind of people make good employees, and IMO "ability to play well with others" is very high on the list.

      In short, I don't care how much of a "wizard" you are, an a**hole is an a**hole, and I will never hire one no matter how "good" they are.

      Disclaimer: I am not calling anyone an a**hole in this post. I don't know merlyn, and have no opinion on him besides his code. I do know metaperl a little better though, and while he has been known to rub people the wrong way, my assessment is that overall he is not a bad guy. But that is just my opinion, nothing more nothing less.
