I can't remember the last thread that was actually on-topic.....

I move for Gllug to be disbanded if we can't sort out the constant
bickering that Gllug has descended into for last couple of YEARS!

Its not just this thread but every single one.

If someone invites us to a Perl meet we argue if its on topic or not,
same with Linux Jobs same. If you try to discuss something that is on
topic and can't be argued against you get  met by cold hard silence.
