New submission from py.user <port139 at yandex.ru>:

>>> barr = bytearray(b'abcde')
>>> lst = list('abcde')
>>> barr[::-3] = ()
>>> barr
bytearray(b'acd')
>>> lst[::-3] = ()
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: attempt to assign sequence of size 0 to extended slice of size 2
>>> del lst[::-3]
>>> lst
['a', 'c', 'd']
>>>

lst[::-3] = () - is more convenient way for deletion
