Imho, for the London Perl community it reflected badly, we want  
people to be
hiring Perl programmers without people attacking their attempts, by  
all means
criticize but don't do it so rudely.

For anyone who takes the job, its not going to be great either having  
new role historically criticized so abruptly.

For Andrew, it might get him some heat from his bosses if they see it  
as he
has opened the company up for exposure by raising this on a public  
again not good.

And for you Delfim Machado, if anyone googles for you before deciding to
offer you a job in the future I wonder how they will regard you.
