Hear, hear.   I am not enjoying watching this from afar.

I get along with ALL of my Chicago.pm homies because I make a POINT of it.  Each and every one of us belongs, no matter our particular strengths and shortcomings.  And let's face it, we all have...how to say it delicately...UNIQUE personalities.
Small communities, such as Perl Mongers, English departments, hippie communes, Maoist parties, minor Protestant sects or avant-garde composers, are prone to power struggles, infighting, holy wars and backstabbing.    We need to recognize this phenomenon and make it stop. 

Negative comments off list, please, and disagreements settled directly with the person in question.
