The 'this' that I referred to as silly was the equality part of the claim,
not that that Boo has *some* relation to Python. I tried to explain by

I did not and do not dispute that Boo has some (lesser) degree of
relatedness. I continued by suggesting that it was about the same as for
Prothon. That there are differences in degree of relatedness was my point.
Nor did I or would I claim that the lesser degree of either is so low that
neither should ever mentioned here.
