I clearly screwed up with the quotes. I had pretty much quit posting on the Internet for a decade, and I am clearly making mistakes as I reconnect. The realtime nature of IRC means I didn't review what I was doing. I realize that this will be hard to believe but what I meant was something akin to "I would summarize chromatic said ...".
Anyhow, that's such a monumental cockup that it's obvious to me that I need to shutup. I'll let Patrick know your response and quit posting here. Thanks PerlMonks for this resource. I will return to reading and not writing.
