Intolerance has been discussed many times in PerlMonks. I think it's very sad to see someone go because they feel mistreated or unwelcome in any way. I don't care if that someone is the most expert of Perl hackers or the newest newbie on the block. PerlMonks is a community, and we should be willing to welcome everyone, as long as they abide by some basic rules of civility.

mt2k has been around for some time now (almost the same time as myself, I just discovered). And yes, he can be noisy and sometimes annoying, but I'm sure he has learned a great deal about Perl by hanging out here (as we all have!), and that's the first step towards contributing valuable contents to a site like this. We were all young and careless at some time, and some people (at least in my case) cared enough to give us the opportunity to show that we could mature and become valuable members of a group.

I have never been personally offended by mt2k's questions or attitude, but maybe someone else has. But we should learn to resolve those differences among ourselves without anyone feeling the need to leave.

That said, mt2k, there's also some opportunities you have to forge for yourself. Show to everyone that you can actually pull off what you announced a few days ago, and you'll gain the respect of many people here.

Ok, enough rambling.
