First time I've seen that... thanks for posting.

Stefan, winning is not getting beaten down, and in the immediate aftermath of September 11th the people of New York and the USA in general pulled together to show the perpetrators that the US is a strong country and it can withstand horrific attacts like what happened on Sept. 11th.

Whether or not people in high places spun the tradgedy for their own purposes is another issue, and should not undermine the true heros of that day.

(I hate to say this but...) The difference is that Rich's issues is that they are issues which come "from the trenches". Rich spends a LOT of time in IRC, he's help us all out, I have his book on my shelf, and he is very well known for his effort in supporting the Apache community.

What has Theo done to help PEAR or bring the quality level of PHP manual comments up? There's a difference in being self-deprecating and trashing something that others work hard on.

User comments are user comments :) anyone who takes them seriously has issues. I always scan over them when looking at the documentation and often find interesting snippets.

A lot of crap in the mysql comments as well, but they really add a lot there as well.

Matthieu if you are a developer in Florida I'm looking for a PHP/JS/CSS person (more emphasis on the JS/CSS) to fill a position in West Palm Beach. If you're interested, drop an email to aaron@wormus.com.

Soooooooo that's where all the trolls went. Slashdot was getting pretty quiet. Now with the new Web2.0 look I hope we can get some of our troll-share back ;)

Reading long posts doesn't make me happy... flaming as soon as I find something I disagree with does ;)

A lot of the "negativity" is also just people venting in a platform which you have provided for them. If you provide a way to vent anonymously it's no surprise that people will do so.

IANAP (I'm not a psychologist) but I would venture to say that it's therapeudic to have a good old fashion flame war every now and then.

Anyway, it's good to see people moderating comments. Your blog is your castle, if you let the trolls in you're either going to have to get them out or take responsibility for the mess they make :)
