Besides, metaperl (a.k.a. princepawn) faults are far beyond spelling. He's being abusing people for years. And while that could be excusable if you are a true wizard (à la meryln), it's really insufferable behaviour from somebody whose sole distinguished feature is sloppiness and cargo cult coding.

Please explain why it is acceptable for merlyn (which you misspelled BTW ;) to abuse people more than it is for metaperl?

I actually just had a discussion with a co-worker this morning about what kind of people make good employees, and IMO "ability to play well with others" is very high on the list.

In short, I don't care how much of a "wizard" you are, an a**hole is an a**hole, and I will never hire one no matter how "good" they are.

Disclaimer: I am not calling anyone an a**hole in this post. I don't know merlyn, and have no opinion on him besides his code. I do know metaperl a little better though, and while he has been known to rub people the wrong way, my assessment is that overall he is not a bad guy. But that is just my opinion, nothing more nothing less.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
