Can we please stop over-generalising like this? PyPI makes getting more algorithms easy for *SOME* people. (Sorry for shouting, but you just pressed one of my buttons.)

My apology was a polite fiction, a left over from the old Victorian British "stiff upper lip" attitude that showing emotion in public is Not The Done Thing. I should stop making those faux apologies, it is a bad habit.
We aren't robots, we're human beings and we shouldn't apologise for showing our emotions. Nothing important ever got done without people having, and showing, strong emotions either for or against it.
