Threads like these are meaningless, does not provide any learning
value and is nowhere near the single vs double quote thread.
It opens the gap for people who are not concerned about development
jump in the game shifting the focus away while nurturing a culture of thrash
I mean you tend to ignore threads from python-dev and python-ideas which
is not probably why you subscribed in the first place
This is not the first time i am saying that you can fly around the world on official
Python mailing lists. But it's regrettable that it's the first time i am seeing people
telling that they should educate others and things like that. It can be based on the
argument and circle around it but personal attacks are off limit
If this was a Github issue, i don't think you list moderators would have dragged it
around that much. Worst case scenario, someone would have been pinged and
the issue taken care of. A PR or closing and you are done.
I raised the issue of closing a mail thread before and the impractical nature of
it was discussed but maybe warnings and continued posting after the warning
results in ban can be enforced
And it's annoying that it got dragged to two mailing lists. I respect Python people
and i am always eager to follow some C code discussions, deprecating this C API
etc. It's a new world for me.
Maybe active list members should sign a convention or a vetting process can be setup
before we can discuss it on the lists. Not ideal but might be useful.
