I can only second this.

I found it about as surprising s/o actually followed Thomas' "hint"  
as the "hint" itself.  Like… s/o jumping out of the window because he  
was told so.  Thomas has always been a worthy member of this  
community.  I have 345 messages from Thomas in my TextMate mailbox  
and he's always been friendly and helpful.  It's tragic that somehow  
this comment made it through Thomas' reality check AND someone really  
followed the bad advice.  We shouldn't judge the whole community for  
this single incident.

I wish I had a 0.3% error rate in my comments and at the same time I  
hope my 0.3% error will not be that bad.


As a side-note I don't think connecting this list to whatever bad  
smell you have with the ruby community is helpful in any way.
