It is brainstorming, so these are just assumptions. I doubt it is
possible to gather correct data or validate it, because most people on
Internet have no reasons to be honest. I would say it is quite the
opposite. In any case people like thе man who listens more rather than
the one that makes their autopsy. =) I mean that processing direct
feedback from users about what they dislike about Python community
would be more effective than trying to guess that. But it is still fun
to think about something not that technical.
