in thread Ignorant Article

It is 1:16 in Malaysia where I am, so I will definitely stop after this. :)

12kashe, you're right that I should not have let the posters before me, who were attacking me personally, get me riled. Just water under th bridge right?

You are right in this.

Unfortunately, I am just so sick and tired of this kind've post and needed a bit of vent.

Sadly, it is the lack of respect that you state as being foundational to the community which I believe was there in the beginning but which is no longer there, that has finally driven me out of the perl community altogether.

The irony is that I was just speaking to an old time friend who was trying to convince me in his own way, to come back and I was actually thinking about it.

Then I get unsolicited mail from one of the monks telling me to read this thread. So I did, and it really hurt my feelings.

So, fine. I reacted poorly, you are right. Nevertheless, I have other things to do.

Next time, when someone starts a thread about someone else's work as "Ignorant" maybe you will step in a bit sooner beacuse, regardless of the fact that I should not have 'continued' it, it was lack of respect that started this.

    Thanks for coming back and stating this.

    Your right that it can be painful when your personal work is targeted. Your also right it can be difficult to bite your tongue, especially when you feel strongly that the initiator doesn't know what they are talking about.

    But we honestly do have a fairly solid, understanding community here. Its the reason I actually created an account here, and continue coming back day after day. Perlmonks really is a breath of fresh air compared to many of the communities out there.

    So I'm glad you cleared the air, and I'm sorry I was so blunt. I just simply couldn't allow the thread to continue in that manner.

    On a side note, I think the article was fairly accurate. While there have been improvements (mod_perl, fastcgi, et all) the state problems, and the server load haunted admins for a long time. Also alot of CGI in the wild was one persons code, copied and pasted in alot of places, and not really optomized for the environment it was in, nor the language it was written in.

    Sorry to leave a bad taste in your mouth, but maybe you should troll around a bit and see what we have to offer. One case in point is a new monk xmath. He dived right in the first day here creating a new module along the lines of Dumper, with nothing out there scratching his itch. Since then he was asked why reinvent that wheel, why not patch existing modules, etc.. Now I believe a portion of the monks here are actively helping to debug and extend the module. Such is life in the monastary, as it should be.

    sub nit { print "Its L2Kashe\nThink processors :)\n"; }

    happy hacking
