If they do Python, they are doing OO.
So if they over do python, they are overdoing OO. :)

I think, you mean writing a program in particular language in a
"idiomatic way". Nothing to do with OO here.
Singleton patterns do not really apply in Python world.

That's what I found it wrong. It is not required for him to do a
self-analysis to study OO.
Python is a completely OO language from ground up. If you learn
python, you are learning OO.
Only thing is, "if you care", you might just have to get the terms
right as the rest of the world knows or expects.

And together we learn. :)
