in thread Additions to the FAQ and a Community Statement

Reasonable people may very well disagree whether it made its point well or at all, but that's a debate that bores me.
After all, honesty and accountability are for the little people.

EDIT: I should quote the whole message, since he may change it later...

What does chromatic deserve again?
I posted it on purpose and I deleted it on purpose and I stand by both of those purposes.

Unlike almost everything from Anonymonk, it's tied to my professional identity. Reasonable people will interpret it as something intended as satire and unreasonable peopleŚwell, there's no reasoning with them, by definition. If I'd thought for one moment that Ratazong would have taken it as a personal attack, I wouldn't have posted it.

Reasonable people may very well disagree whether it made its point well or at all, but that's a debate that bores me. I care a lot more about the silly false equivalences in that thread and this one, or about the idea that "don't feed the trolls" is a stronger guiding principle than "all that is required for incivility to stand is for civil people to say nothing".

Just another Perler interested in Algol Programming.
