Why else would somebody (Rocco) post fabricated statements ot this list to
badmouth my person? I challenged Rocco to provide evidence, but he failed
to do so and failed to take back his lie.

At the very least that's his campaign, or give me another reason why Rocco
would spread such a lie publicly? It serves no other purpose than to
slander me, because he must be well aware that he's not telling the truth.

And it even worked with a few people (fortunately not too many) here.

While I don't read his mail the same waa as you apparently (he didn't only
really reverted a tiny part of what he said), I appreciate that he did, it
really wasn't appropriate.

This is not a just flamewar - Rocco abused this list to slander my person
specifically with fabricated statements, and this needs to be spelled out.

I fully agree that discussing the actual issues on this list is wrong,
too, but make sure you don't get confused and remember who started it, and

I have a very similar view on that too. Seems that the closest thing to
the powers-to-be on CPAN agree with me, as well, and it's good to hear
that demerphq got to his senses as well.

Perl developers asking for modules to be removed because of their personal
taste is really a very bad sign to module authors, so it really should not
