in reply to Eulogy for the chatterbox

During the wars of COBOL vs Perl. Ovid and Me discussed the pros and cons. But we gave up just before the "p-contest".

Some of you think that we passed the limit of being respectful to each other. But I don't believe that I crossed that line. I know that Ovid didn't pass my line.

But when I'm on perlmonks... I think that the most important thing that I can do is show som respect against my fellow perl users. Share my views. I don't think that different rules apply to the monastery than in real life.

If I don't agree.. I discuss... and try not to offend...

But Ovid maid the most important point we're all here for the reason that we enjoy perl programming. And have fun while learning more about Perl.

    I certainly hope that no one thought we "passed the limit of being respectful"! While you and I clearly have different opinions on this matter, I feel that we both made strong points in favor of our respective positions without being rude to one another.

    Despite the fact that I disagree with your point of view, I enjoyed our discussion in Perl: Survival of the Fittest and I feel that it's a good example of how people can legitimately disagree with one another, and even disagree at length, without being rude. Some of our statements were a tad strong and we may be accused of attacking each other's statements, but we never attacked each other. That, for me, is as far as such differences of opinion should go.

    <HUMOR>But you're still wrong about COBOL.</HUMOR> ;)
