Luis,

As a disinterested observer, I would like to go on record as
disagreeing with your entire assessment of this situation.  I
found Peter Hansen's response to Doug Holton quite appropriate.

I also disagree with your perception that "very often on this
list, some replies show much of intolerance and very little
politeness."  I think c.l.py is one of the more civil lists
going.
