And as a result, I've had to suffer 10 days of offensive, ad hominem attacks. Thanks!

I'm not apologising, because I did nothing wrong.

You don't have to apologize, really. You just have to stop arguing, because I believe you've made your argument, and there are really no further points to make (on either side). By continuing, you seem (to me) to be stubborn and unsympathetic, unwilling to concede that another interpretation of the situation is a valid interpretation worthy of sympathy. I am sure that is not a fully accurate description of you, but unfortunately I have only these last 10 days of reading these discussions to go on.

Looking at the time-lines, all those "offenderati" that came along to attack me as a result of your blogging, would almost certainly never have seen the cartoon had you not called attention to it by blogging.

Are you saying that bad behavior shouldn't be publicized? Of course, this argument is all about whether or not the behavior was bad, but if it was bad, should it not be publicized? If it wasn't bad, does it matter if it was publicized?

[Corion]: Hi marto!
[choroba]: Good morning!
[Corion]: I hope you had a good weekend!
[marto]: jetlag has really done a number on the kids, it's been a tough week
choroba played with the band on Saturday, so Sunday was very sleepy
[choroba]: managed to release Syntax::Construct with 5.28 support in the night, though
[Corion]: choroba: Whee ;)
[Corion]: marto: Ouch - I would've thought that kids adapt much better, but that's obviously not the case...
[marto]: well, their mother let them sleep till 15:00 & 12:00 last week, which didn't help them adjust :P
[Corion]: I was "productive" over the weekend in the sense that I revived my old "Perlmonks on SQLite" code, which likely means I can get a test instance back up running on my webhost. Small steps :)
