( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

We have a .perlcriticrc file checked into our code repository which I've pointed my text editor (see perlcriticrc packaged with project ) to but there are some inconsistencies between what perlcritic finds for me and what perlcritic finds for another member of the team. We're both using the same .perlcriticrc file and we can verify this by turning rules off and on by prefixing a minus sign (-) and check that we are getting warnings. The problem comes from rules that are not defined, for example I'm getting this error: "Lint: CRUEL: Found method-call chain of length 5" but the other person isn't. We haven't defined a rule for ValuesAndExpressions::ProhibitLongChainsOfMethodCalls so it seems like the default is being handled inconsistently.

Does anyone know why the rules are being checked differently and is there a way to fix this? Can I specify what happens for rules that are not listed in the rc file, such as always disabled?
