Proliferation of speculation, chaotic fearful grasping of ideas, just
plain off-topic discussion. Threads just went wild. You must have just
missed it, but there is an archive.

Maybe the initial problem was that a lot of key people were still at
TPC or just coming back, so speculation was rife for a few days. Initial
fears seem to have been calmed down.

Many very interesting discussions ensued, unfortunately, as several
people have pointed out, they were off-topic.

How about continuing those discussions on comp.lang.perl.moderated?
