Actually, there's only one fuckhead posting the FAQ, and that's me. :)
It's once every four hours (so only six a day). They always come from
the same posting address so they are easy to filter, and I use my real
email address as the sender so people know who's doing it and how to
contact me. Posting these excerpts to comp.lang.perl.misc is the only
reason the FAQ is as healthy as it is. The readers send me patches for
errors, updates, and so on.
It might seem like half the *messages* are PerlFAQ, but it's more like
half of the new *threads*. Depending on your newreader, that can be
confusing I guess.
It's really just me, the maintainer of the Perl FAQ. No other fuckheads
have anything to do with it, so don't credit or blame them.
Re: comp.lang.* newsgroups seems dying
thanks for the info.
btw, it's not a complain. I'm just illustrating a aspect of maverick
practice among perlers.
btw, is80=9Ccomp.lang.perl.*=E2=80=9D officially defunct? Someone told=
the activity is at80=9Cperl.*=E2=80=9D.
