No one is really making fun of him. I just don't see the point in
pretending not to be amused. I think everyone saw the direction this
thread could have gone. I just hoped that we were able to honestly
converse about it, instead of shying away from the conversation.
That's also the reason I'm assuming Uri posted it.

Surely there should be interesting conversations about such an
interesting...assortment of modules.

In case he does read this, please log on to #perl on freenode. I'm
sure there will be many of us willing to help break it down and
explain what is wrong.
