    I feel like the Miami Heat in this node. Everything I say is getting dissected like a science project. All I meant by "we" is "we as a Perl Monks Community". Is this such a bad thing? Please do not take this offensively but I mean these things in the best of ways. I'm not trying to get on anyone's bad side.

      I find inappropriate pluralization infantilizing in general.

      In technical contexts, I find it most often used by people who want to tell other people what to do without doing anything themselves.

      If that's not you, great! Build such an application. I'd like to see it. You have all the permission you need: a computer and programming skills. Just about everything you see on this site or in the Perl community has come from people who built things they wanted to build. Go and do the same.

        I am sorry to say I just started Perl a month ago and have very little experience and cannot build this yet. If I could believe me I would build it. But I am just putting an idea on this site. Nothing else. I am sorry if you take this as a selfish request to get an app because trust me it isn't.

      Everything "we" reply seems to get interpreted so harshly. Why are you taking such offense while asking everybody else to stop taking offense?

      And this seems to be interfering with your appreciation of much of the feedback that has been offered to you.

      - tye        

        You are right. I'm sorry that I am taking so much offense. I am just trying to get my point across but I am doing so in an incorrect manor.
