Rolf,

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

      A PerlMonks community who has time and time again made me feel unwelcome. So I don't see the big political importance. if anything, what I say here has proven to be not very important.

      I always fought hard to keep this community open for diverse opinions and constructive discussions and am sad when the system folds to trolling.
      I know your pain. I am also sad that I had to "fold" from my views, in order to get Perl 6 renamed. I think we are in a new reality now, where forces in the communities want to distance themselves from each other. I have given in to these forces now. If anything, my remarks were intended to allow more rest in the monastery.

      So out of respect to us who played fair, please bother for 5 minutes to get your password mailed.
      So done, and now I will immediately delete that mail again. I don't intend to come back here. I wish the PerlMonks and the Perl 5 community best of luck in their future endeavours. I'm no longer part of them anymore.

        I will always be grateful for your participation in Perl.

        I echo the others' sentiments. You were always a force for good, liz. I personally regret that things were said here which make you want to leave. :-(

        Sad you feel that way. We'll always love you liz.

        Cheers, Sören

        Thank you for answering! Now it's official. :(

        I'm really sorry if a very small minority here made you feel not welcomed.

        It's one thing to argue about differing opinions , another to byte people away.

        Sad day...

        Cheers Rolf

        The path to hell is paved with good intentions.

        The intention behind Perl 6 was good, there is no doubt about that.

        It hurt Perl reputation nevertheless and the stubborn refusal to rename "the next version of Perl" to "project whatever that might become some future version of Perl" when it became clear that it's not going to be anywhere near complete any year soon was a big part of that. The project should have NEVER been called Perl 6!
