Clearly you are interested in people's philosophical take on why you
should've posted to the Ruby boards, because you take the time to
respond to each and every criticism.

It's interesting to note that you could've pre-empted the question by
saying either "I've also posted this to the Ruby group, but I wanted
your take" or "The Ruby group is a bunch of dunder heads and I only
like Python programmers" etc.  However your ranting and whining about
people not answering the question to your satisfaction is amusing.

Beggars can't be choosers my friend.  You posted an antagonistic
question to the Python board, expect to get antagonistic responses.

Clearly people don't care if they are answering your question in a way
that is suitable and appealing to you.
