  • Commented on How should a JSON parser handle character strings?
    I may be a bit late, but I am mostly with Pete here... JSON parsers often accept JSON texts in various encodings - utf-8 is obviously very common. They sometimes also accept unencoded JSON, which, IMHO, isn't valid JSON text...
  • Commented on AnyEvent::ForkManager stuck on Strawberry but not on ActivePerl?
    Neither ActivePerl nor Strawberry Perl implement fork even remotely correctly or reliable. The only thing that works somewhat reliable is fork+exec. In addition, Strawberry Perl has enourmous problems because some of its modules are linked against incompatible libcs, which thwarts...
  • Commented on AnyEvent::Capture - Synchronous calls of async APIS
    > specially in libraries, where your code should block *Especially* in libraries you should _never_ block, because that means only one such library can work concurrently, which in turn defeats the whole purpose of using events. (I interpreted "library" to...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    Your code of course doesn't even come close to whats needed. Posting some incomplete code that doesn't even remotely come near to a solution and proclaiming that it is easy is very naive. Besides, the extra work is not the...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    > Marc. Really, we're just trying to help. I know we probably seem like a bunch of whiney retards to you some ( most? ) days The problem is not people who seem to be whiney retards, the problem is...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    > Whether or not any of the technical realities you say are true, none of that gives you the right to continually be an awful person to anyone who happens to stumble on your RT queue and genuinely try to...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    As has been pointed out countless times, this "very simple thing" doesn't work, is far from simple, and in addition a lot of unnecessary work. Your claim that I am unwilling to do a simple thing to fix the situation...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    In the meantime, on planet earth, the mailbombings continue. Still way below the spam level, but somehow, it's interesting how the people who always feel maltreated always have a handy botnet ready to do their deeds. That, too is illustrative...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    How nicely said. Good example for form over content - anything is fine as long as it contains no evil word, right?...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    It is, btw., also typical troll tactics to claim to "not respond" but then actually to respond, just as you have done. So maybe "don't feed the troll" would be the correct behaviour form now on-...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    First of all, the only one who degrades you is you, yourself. that default is "be civil". And that is *exactly* what has happened. Everything was civil until you repeatedly trolled the bugtracker. Your "let's be civil" claim is a...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    That is surely progress, but as I keep preaching, it doesn't really solve the problem. It must not be that each time a new service comes up, be it annocpan, rt.cpan.org, metacpan etc., module authors are forced to make dummy...
  • Commented on I was called "fucking asshole"
    @kmx: I explained to you, twice, that you are confusing search.cpan.org with rt.cpan.org, I told you twice, in a normal tone, to not send mail to rt.cpan.org because that creates extra needless work for me. You ignored it twice, and...
