If it's further consolation, my reply—Re^2: How to Implement Perl 6 in Ten Years—to the paragraph you quote originally began, "Really, really stupid." I swapped it for "naïve" as a concession to civility and part of my court ordered community service.
I think you guys are amazing and I feel so lucky to be a Perl hacker; the only career that matches my personality and pays more than janitorial work. I have many thoughtful, patient, creative, caring persons like you to thank for my situation. Thank you!
