The Perl/Raku communities rely heavily on volunteer work. It is sad to know that hate speech has been directed at members of the Perl/Raku community recently.
Of course there are differences in our backgrounds, beliefs and experiences and we must build on these, be curious and learn about each other.
Aggressive, hostile and violent behaviour is never an appropriate way to relate to others and it is disappointing that such behaviour is witnessed from people within our circles.
Please use this moment to reflect on how you interact with others, and consider if you could be more welcoming, warm and interested in those around you.
If you are aware of someone receiving such attacks, how can you support them? If you notice someone treating others disrespectfully, how can you help them understand the impact this may have on the recipient? Lets all work together to value each other equally through respectful communication.
