Besides, even if it were true - look at whom you cc'ed. Yep, the person who,
long ago, showed definite lack of respect for my work and tried to threaten
me to do his work for him, for free, while treading me, well, "unfriendly" to
use an euphemism.

So, while I respect the work of others, I wouldn't be surprised if that
respect would be slowly eroded by the behaviour I get in return. Why
measure me with higher standards than others?

If at all, I should be praised for not going down to that level, but I
make no illusions of that (and I don't like, nor care, for praise).

If you have any grain of integrity in you, then think about that. Maybe
even research history a bit. Then you will see I am right.

Sure that sounds arrogant, but after people telling me my code is shoddy
because investing more than half my waking life into it is not enough
(while they invest a lot less, and with far worse results) and that I
have to support every single compiler out there, no matter how old and
superceded it is, there is little left to me.

I will continue to provide quality software that is useful for an
enourmous number of perl users despite what some freaks think of it. I'm
doing it for the users, not for them.
