Yes, my message was to everyone, using a quote from 'einstein1410' that 
I thought demonstrated the point.

The vast majority of the messages in this thread are from 'einstein' nd 
are short, nonsensical retorts to others who are trying to be helpful, 
that just seem designed to get a further response and nothing more. 
Whether or not it's on purpose, he's just trolling. I may be wrong, but 
it just looks like the result of a bet to me - perhaps there's a similar 
thread on a Perl group somewhere and whoever gets the most replies wins.
