There are many things I disagree about with you, Marc, including the 
notion of this being a campaign of some sort[1], but not the rest of the 
above paragraph. I agree that it's your right to do whatever you want[2] 
with your CPAN contributions. More importantly, demerphq, who originally 
reacted so strongly, has publicly expressed that he has come around to 
this line of thinking as well.

In the context, I would like to kindly suggest that this thread pass 
away in relative peace to whatever place that flame wars go to when they 
die. (This directed at everyone.)

Thank you.

[1] But that's a detail I do not care to discuss at length.

[2] Within limits. I draw the line at, for example, racism, or malware. 
And I am quite certain that the other PAUSE admins, most notably 
Andreas, have a similar view on this.
