I have had off-list exchanges with people who were reluctant to post to 
edu-sig, mainly because they didn't have the time, inclination, or (in 
some cases) the fluency in English to become embroiled in political debates.

If you ask me (and as I recall, nobody did ;-) ) the great thing about 
the tutor list is the way they rigorously (and gently) stick to the 
topic of helping people learn Python. So, yeah...


This time for sure!
