Jeremy, I didn't attack anyone's religion or race. 
We are talking about a programing language...why are you so touchy?

Granted. Perhaps I should have started the phrase: "In my humble
English is not my mother tongue, as you might have already guessed, so
excuse me if I'm not sensitive enough...

If you read again my previous post, you'll see that I already
expressed my genuine admiration and gratitude for python's developers
and that I think that the path they are taking for improving python is
the correct one.
As for what I'm doing to help python, I'm affraid nothing, Im sorry.
I'm not a developer. Maybe I'm just helping by spreading the word that
python is great...
As far as I know, this forum is for all python users, not just

I appreciate other people's oppinions, even when I disagree. I didn't
say that other people's oppinions were nonsense, what I meant is that
the whole discussion was getting nonsense, because there's no use in
discussing wether python is slow or not.
Now if you find this oppinion ofensive, I'm sorry.

With duly respect, I don't need you to teach me how and when I should
express myself.
Please don't get me wrong, I really find much of your writing
reasonable, but the arrogant tenor of your educational suggestion is
out of place.
