in thread Perl 6 to be renamed?

What haukex should have asked is: What negative impact has any P6 discussion on perlmonks had on you?

To play the devil's advocate for a second, I imagine a response to that could be that continuing to mix Perl 5 and 6 continues to spread "confusion" about the two languages. (Which I disagree with.)

No, I really did mean to ask the question the way I did :-)

    I wasn't suggesting that you asked a question other than what you meant. I just think that the question as I posed it would have been much more relevant to the topic of whether P6 discussion should be allowed here at pm.

      Yes, I did hijack this subthread a little, sorry :-)

      > the topic of whether P6 discussion should be allowed here at pm.

      So how many times do we need to discuss this and how many times need the gods to intervene?

      Re^8: Perl 6: From Regular Expressions to Grammars, Part 4 (board politics)

      Imagine you are running a restaurant and I pass by regularly and start a vocal discussion if coloured people should be served here or women deserve equal pay.

      Do you think these discussions will make them feel welcomed and benefit the restaurant?

      Do you think constantly appeasing an aggressor who is questioning free speech benefits free speech?

      Do you think other's will continue to value the authority of the gods?

      I'm starting to have nostalgic feelings about tye's more clinical approach to authority.

      DISCLAIMER: I'm neither coloured°, female nor Perl6-ish.

      And I'm not frustrated!

      I'm just very aware of the Bolshevik method to sabotage a parliament with procedural tricks.

      °) well in my coordinate system, Benjamin Franklin might object.

        Imagine you are running a restaurant and I pass by regularly and start a vocal discussion if coloured people should be served here or women deserve equal pay.

        I'm not speaking as a member of gods, but I think this example could derail the discussion. Programming language is not an intrinsic characteristic of a person; it can't be a protected category.

        Ouch. Care to elaborate?
