To be honest, I do. Some people have spent quite some time putting
together an FAQ list for Python, so that frequently-asked questions
would not need to be answered over-and-over-again. There was no
indication that the original poster was aware of
"Why is it called Python" or
"Why was Python created in the first place"

It may be that the author was aware of it, but I feel a response that
just says "RTFM" is as legitimate as the question (of course, such an
answer should at least supply the location of the FAQ list).
