Wow. What list was this again? This response seems just a tad beyond 
"passionate." Some might find it even hostile. I think I must have 
misunderstood the goals of this mailing list.

Individuals can send their own comments, whatever they may be, to 
python-dev. I'm going away, as requested. The noise to signal ratio here 
is pretty high, and now I fear I have contributed to that.

You can find me over at edupython at googlegroups.com.
