in thread RFC: Concise OOP Syntax

"If I'm not wrong does this chart indicate that more than 50% of the users are on versions <=14.2."

Nice try, o Master of Confusion, the cited article is six-and-a-half years old. Sigh.

From the 2018 survey cited:

"The most popular version is 5.24, while the latest version, 5.26, is second to last. The other section had various responses, including older version like 5.8, 5.1."


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

      Apples and oranges, as you are no doubt aware. mst was unhelpfully telling a seeker he was confused, with no other input. Sowing confusion is quite different, obviously. I'm simply calling out misleading statements by someone who acts more and more like the new Sundial, as you did for years with the original. As for moving the ball forward, I'm suggesting that the monk in context move his own by learning standard tools, and move the monastery's by being able to answer questions with real solutions rather than creating new rabbit holes for the unwary to fall in.

        I am not aware. I think the “abused” party was the bad actor in that situation and proof of that is that he presented only his emotional reaction and didn’t cite the exchange because it’s clear to any disinterested party that nothing untoward or hostile happened and it was merely a POV, communication style clash. MST’s humble, effacing response to the blog post is further proof of my assertion.

        I politely asked SunnyD for years to change his participation before elevating responses. There is no other user who can be compared to that situation and it’s disingenuous, borderline smear, to suggest otherwise.

        I agree with you on most issues—you’re closer to me on certain social issue than any other monk I can think of—and I find your posts valuable personally—I’ve learned two things from you lately—but this is clearly a personal vendetta that has nothing to do with contribution value or protecting anyone. This thread is a perfect example of a rather interesting proposal seeking constructive criticism.

        Sidenote: I’m on Perl 5.8 and have had this kind of experience regularly: My colleagues "never" used cpan before and never heard of cpanm. :P

        then take your own advice: "given how much you and others are triggered by this monk. Why not just leave him alone?"
