  • About: I blog about Perl.
  • Commented on MooseX for No Poop
    They're also spamming the r/perl subreddit....
  • Commented on Your benchmarks suck!
    Dumbbench doesn't seem to be very well maintained anymore....
  • Commented on Inline::F2003 - An ILSM for modern FORTRAN
    How come it wasn't named Inline::Fortran? That would probably be easier for users to find when searching cpan....
  • Commented on 6lang: The Naming Discussion Update
    Perl 6 started the design process in 2000, which is before many of these people were even born. So instead of trying to win the race claiming to be the hare, be proud of being the tortoise ;-)...
  • Posted Spam on CPAN to whirlyperly

    Some idiot has just uploaded a purely spam distribution: THEMA-MEDIA. He clearly knows it's idiotic, because his README.md begins with "CPAN-foolishness".

  • Commented on Please don't use ::Tiny unless it meets the ::Tiny criteria, thanks!
    I doubt many people creating ::Tiny modules would be using the monstrous beast that is Dist::Zilla to manage them....

    Could be x-lang (eks-lang). Not so bad, not taken as far as I know.

  • tinita commented on MooseX for No Poop

    To be fair, they're not spamming reddit. _perly_bot just posts every post from blogs.perl.org to reddit.

  • John commented on MooseX for No Poop

    I've had to ban the _perly_bot to avoid seeing these ridiculous titles when I visit /r/perl.

    Hopefully byterock reconsiders making more descriptive and less strange titles because the current ones are just driving people away from both his/her blog and /r/perl.

  • Zoffix Znet commented on MooseX for No Poop

    FWIW: including comment in the article's source will prevent _perly_bot from posting it in places.

    -_- looks like the site strips HTML comments... I meant text "no-perly-bot" inside a comment.
