Have a heart, Tom.  I suspect that most of us knew what he meant about ideas
being crushed under a tirade of words with you demonstrating.  Go back and 
read the message again, sir.  Then sentence you took out of context wasn't 
trying to say that Perl should be like anyone else.  It was about Perl 
being accepting of people--being comfortable to work with.  And the message
was about the scars of watching p5p in process.  Damien, thanks for sharing.
