No way!

No meaning does not automatically mean apathetic. If someone else expresses my
opinion in better words, which isn't hard to do (Damian, Tom), I keep silent.

Because of the time difference between USA and Europe, this happens more than
once. During the day I get `only' about 50 posts on perl6-all, when I return
in the morning, there may be over 300 mails waiting.

Being a non-english tonguer, it's sometimes hard to find the right arguments
to express my mind.

Anyway, keep up the good work. Responds are read, both positive and negative.
Let's build a great perl6.
