I do think that it has become an abusive place
I agree. I've done some careful research that proves you are right about Perl Monks becoming an abusive place. Here is the evidence:
- I’d kick your a*s right down the river and order you to rewrite it immediately (Re: RFC Using PERL HEREDOC script within bash)
- Your project failed. It is dead. It was dead half a decade ago. Please, bury the dammed thing and get lost. (Re^2: -Ofun times)
- I even had a London Barrister contact me, again, unsolicited, and specifically offer to track down BrowserUK all the way across The Pond and to haul him in front of Her Majesty’s Court on my behalf. (Re: Can I please have multiple downvotes per (certain monk's) posts.)
- In a word: shut up. (Re^3: Using 64 Bit Perl for Production Scripts.)
- sorry, “troll-UK,” but I do have “experience” here (Re^3: Installing Template::Toolkit on Windows)
- It is, at best, very rude to say “total garbage” in response to a post ... it doesn’t make you look like a genius, merely a boor. (Re: Comparing two arrays)
- BrowserUK, didn’t you “forget” to log in? (Re^3: Multithreading leading to Out of Memory error)
- Good morning, BrowserUK, did you forget to log-in again? (Re^3: Security: Dancer Session cookie swap)
- BrowserUK, there’s a marvelous little box at the upper right-hand corner of the screen called, “Log In.” (Re^3: Security: Dancer Session cookie swap)
- BrowserUK, the very least that you can do, before spewing-off like that, is to have the professional courtesy to do so under your own name, thus to accept responsibility for the downvotes, if not outright post-deletion, that such a thing would so richly deserve. That being said, this entire reply is vitriolic rubbish. (Re^3: Global variable unexpectedly modified when passed by reference)
- And you yourself know it to be a lot of bilge, so there. (Re^3: The future of Perl?)
- Here’s another post that you can now “down-vote twice,” as you appear to be accustomed to doing. (Re^4: Bidirectional lookup algorithm? (Updated: further info.))
- Therefore, please dispatch yourself, forthwith, back to the ivory towers from which you came and to which you and your ever-so-insistent properly belong. The rest of us, in “that great-big World Out There,” e-a-r-n our keep! Good luck, sir, in applying for The Next Rich-Man’s Tax-Evading Grant™ that keeps your household in tea and biscuits. (Re^2: RAM: It isn't free . . . (No, but its damn cheap!))
- Quit peeing in the PerlMonks Pool. (Re^4: What 'should' a professional PERL programmer know?)
- NO, IT IS NOT “PUERILE TROLLING!” Yes, I am unfortuantely well aware that BrowserUK and (by my rough estimate of downvote counts) about ±7 other Monks), “has a fan-club” ... Hope that the Queen isn’t listening in. (Re: [OT] The interesting problem of comparing bit-strings.)
- Okay, I’ll take-on this assertion and even (why not?) assert that every one of you who “down-voted” my post did so because you are both clueless and wrong!!” (Cowabunga! Here goes!! Downvote me! I don’t care!! Wheeee!!!) (Re^3: Would you suggest alternative names for Perl 6?)
