As I put in my reply to your personal email - I asked in the python ng for
help with a python program I was writing NOT an opinion on what I was
Not replying to the post would have been better than you pushing your
opinions on others when not asked.
When I posted I didn´t say ¨Hey guys,help me and the program I write
will guarantee you´ll win the lottery.¨ I merely asked for help with a
programming problem for a personal project - whether it is a fools errand
is my business and not for anyone else to gainsay.
