May be if you've actually tried to understand the problem, rather than 
derive your conclusions from a surfacial brush, you won't have been 
wasting the bandwidth and our time, instead you would have directed your 
seemingly copious tuits to solve the problem, rather than bragging about it.

I promise you Randal, people will adopt mp2, not because Randal gave them 
a green light to do so, but because it's a superior technology to mp1.

All you are going to achieve by continuing what you are doing[1] is that 
more people are going to ignore you. And it's a pity, since I used to 
think that you were a very helpful person to the perl world, when I was 
just starting myself. Unfortunately this is no longer true. I wish this 
wasn't the case.

So keep trying.

[1] In case you didn't notice. That's how Randal helps to encourage people 
to test mod_perl2 release candidates to find crucial problems before a 
release is made:
I've no more words for this "person".
