Two years ago at the Perl Conference, I spent some time hanging out with
Tony, Schwern and friends. I found Tony to be a very reasonable person,
friendly, smart, and with a strong interest and care for software, both
his own, and that of others.

I am saddened by the recent turn of events for the Class::DBI users'
community. I hope that all will be well with Tony, as I do not see this
recent behavior actions as typical for him.

Perhaps you can just put up a fresh wiki, so that we can start re-creating
