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
