in reply to Inclusion of Raku on PerlMonks

I think that PerlMonks should be about Perl 5 only. Very simply because the word "Perl" implies "Perl 5" to the outside world, even more so now the rename of "Perl 6" to "Raku" has been put in action. As various people have noted in this thread, PerlMonks wasn't a place that was recommended by the Perl 6 community for questions about Perl 6 in the past. And this will even become less so now with the rename.

I've spend a lot of time on PerlMonks in the past, and I have fond memories of it. And also not some not so nice memories. But that's a thing of the past, and we need to look to the future.

Let PerlMonks be about Perl 5 so we can all start healing. Please don't try to be politically correct. Just politely point people with questions about "Perl 6" or "Raku" to now, and in the further future.

And soon enough we'll meet again, somewhere, somehow. Because blood is thicker than water.

    Hi Liz!

    (provided that's really you speaking and not an anonymous troll)

    Following this logic we'll won't have any "Raku" talks anymore at Perl workshops like YAPC or TPC or *PW because of the P???

    Jeez... Really?

      yes this is me. I just cannot be bothered to look up my login credentials. I hope you understand.

      I was just talking about "PerlMonks". As that has deep roots in Perl 5, and a community that is 99%+ focused on Perl 5.

      With regards to events: we will see. As I've stated many times before in the past year: I will no longer attend or sponsor any events that have just "Perl" in their name, like "London Perl Workshop" or "Perl Toolchain Summit". Because, now even more than before the rename, "Perl" just by itself means "Perl 5". So any potential speakers or visitors would be unaware that "Raku" presentations would be an option there.

        Hi Liz

        > I hope you understand.

        Sorry, no I don't.

        Your statement is of big "political" importance and PM is one of the main media of the community. ( Sorry, I didn't follow your statements on other channels)

        I always fought hard to keep this community open for diverse opinions and constructive discussions and am sad when the system folds to trolling.

        So out of respect to us who played fair, please bother for 5 minutes to get your password mailed.

        Cheers Rolf
