AnyEvent-JSONRPC (0.15) *

Broken, buggy, incomplete and unmaintained.

SimpleXMLParse (1.5.0) *

avoid like the plague. the first clue is the poor choice of module names. then look at the source and see that it uses regular expressions to parse xml.

LWP-UserAgent-Patch-LogResponse (0.06) **

Note this mucks with the internals of LWP instead using the safer handler API that LWP provides.

EBook-MOBI (0.1) *

Very misleading name. You would expect this to read/write MOBI files. Instead, it only converts Pod to MOBI. So it should be named something like Pod::Mobi or Pod::To::Mobi, following existing examples of other Pod converters.

WWW-Parallels-Agent (v0.0.2-TRIAL) ***

Poorly chosen namespace. Too easy for users to think this is a parallel useragent. This should be under VM (VM::Parallels::Agent).

TheForce (0.001) *

useless joke modules belong under the Acme namespace. somebody might actually confuse this with another poorly named, but useful module, called TheSchwartz.

LWP-UserAgent-Anonymous (0.03) **

Storing an old proxy list in the module instead of pulling fresh data is not a good idea. And I question the use of the decrepit Net::Telnet module.

EV (4.03) *

Horrible support. Author auto-responds with rant when RT ticket is created. Then ignores email requests. Somebody else had same issue as me and this was his response:

Date-FromToday (0.02) *

Don't see how this is any better than the venerable DateTime module. Plus, this module requires Moose.

AnyEvent-Redis2 (0.1) *

Appears to offer nothing over the existing AnyEvent::Redis. The documentation doesn't even bother to acknowledge the existing module, let alone how this one is any better.

URI-Encode (0.03) *

The rationale for this module is that it's tinier than URI::Escape? What does 20 fewer lines of code buy you? Is this faster or use less memory? No!

Bundle-Dpchrist (1.044) *

You should delete this from CPAN and move it to a more appropriate site like github, gitorius, bitbucket, launchpad, etc.

Win32-Sound (0.49)

Did the job, but a little buggy. Win32::Sound::Volume('100%') is fading all the way left (ie, sound only out of the left speakers), but the documentation says it should set right=left=100% which should be sound out of all speakers. Bug on winxp, ActivePerl 5.10.1 build 1006 with a Sound Blaster X-Fi.

Perl-Tidy (20090616) **

Doesn't appear to be maintained anymore and the code is so monolithic that it's hard for anybody else to contribute.

DBD-Pg (2.15.1) **

DBD::Pg still does not support cursors. It's embarrassing! Every time you execute a query it fetches the entire result set and stores it in memory, no matter how big it is.
