As danger said, everything you publish will attract
opinions, some good and some bad. After one of my
articles for xml.com they set up a forum to discuss it,
and the title of he first post was "This is a terrible
advice for Perl developers". That's OK, if people
disagree then they should say so. I learnt a thing or
two in the ensuing discussion.
Now there might have been
a problem in how you got to read chromatic's opinion,
but why not send him an email, or /msg him and
get this out of the way so you (and we) can discuss calmly the
technical disagreements you have.
On that point I am certainly not an expert in using DBI,
but when reading your article I could not help but notice
that it was quite unfair with DBI. If DBIx::Recordset is such a great module you
don't have to use deliberately clumsy DBI constructs
to prove it. This certainly detracts from your goal.
And believe me, if I noticed it, I am probably not the
only one. Being enthusiastic about a module is one
thing, not being fair when comparing it to other
modules is another.
