    I have to echo what Jim Keenan said about the tone of this post. It really is about _how you say it_. This stuff hangs around not only on disk but in human memory. I've seen people who are technically proficient get passed over for job interviews because they don't play well with others online. You're not just putting a message out to the world in general, but to people who could possibly be future co-workers, employers, managers etc. We all have bad days, but "there's more than one way to say it", so it's not a bad strategy to choose your words and your tone wisely.

    That's why I love your tools. They simply do work and are *user* friendly.

  • Joel Berger commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?

    Hi, I don’t think anyone else will see this comment on an article posted so long ago. You might want to ask your question as a post of your own. Oh and don’t use all caps, that is considered impolite (yelling) in most online communities including this one.

  • littlemonkperl commented on Does Perl (5) have a future?

    Oh I am sorry Joel about the all caps, this was my first ever comment on any blog, thus was unaware. I will remember that henceforth. What is your opinion or view now after a year of posting the above question ?
