Link: On calling someone writing about perl events spammers

blogs.perl.org, perl ironman, these are all aggregated by machines, not curated by humans. These may be great places to occasionally visit and discover some good writers you eventually subscribe to individually. However subscribing to an entire aggregated feed like these and expecting them to be 100% interesting content to everyone would not obviously work. Name calling someone that doesn’t interest you, working on a community event and working hard to spend their personal time to promote the events, or posting useful stuff in other language than yours spammers is even more offensive.

If you want a good read of perl blog posts and news entries curated by someone, I suggest to go subscribe to feeds and newsletters such as Perl Weekly, reddit/r/perl, perlbuzz or start your own.
