I'm curious (although not excessively so) why do you people all think
that was a flame bait? Why couldn't it simply be a harmless opinion,
along with a few questions (to which I got a pretty good response,
thanks again to everyone who have contributed)?

Isn't that a bit creepy that so many people want to isolate themselves
from anything, about which they're not sure ahead of time that it'll
agree with their preferences? Here: it's been *four* days now that I'm
looking at it, and still I think Python is an ugly language. That's
trolling by your book? Well, you better put it in the FAQ that you don't
want anyone disrupt your Pythonic mutual-masturbation idyll here.
Looking at some programmers it's hard to escape a feeling that this
profession attracts more than its share of narrow-minded, low-brow,
humourless yet exceedingly self-confident cretins. (Or is it only the
case with Python "specialists", hmmmmm ?)
