in thread Why Perl 6 is taking so !@#$ long

Oh dear! Please, please. Go back and look at the date on that post.

I didn't "spread FUD" ... "in an old thread". The comments I made were made at the time that thread was posted. Within 5 hours of the post containing similar comments by another monk which it posted in agreement with and support of. And within 12 hours of the root node of the thread. It was arunbear's post which resurrected that 10-month old thread. But you couldn't be bothered to notice that.

I didn't know who arunbear is, or what his motivation for resurrecting that old thread might be, but I knew I was no longer in touch with things Parrot, having not followed it since Dan left. All I did know was that the immediately previous post I had read, which I had thought about considering as spam, had been frontpaged by him. Which made me suspicious of his motives, so I declined to comment, giving my explanations for why I was doing so. But you couldn't be bothered to read them.

That could, and should have been an end to it, but then you wade in throwing insults & unfounded accusations--which you have continued to throw in every post.

... and refuse to provide details.

Your posts remind of the lost tourist that stops and asks a local. "Oi shithead. You couldn't possibly know the way to my destination."

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
Lingua non convalesco, consenesco et abolesco. -- Rule 1 has a caveat! -- Who broke the cabal?
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

    I actually meant the one posted yesterday, but we're not doing anyone any favors by continuing to discuss this. I apologize for jumping on you about it. It's clear we disagree, and I won't bring it up again.

    Update: Clarified.
