<sarcasm>And your writing is so lucid and comprehensible, it's a pity
you can't simply rewrite the documentation so the rest of the world can
While the Python documentation does, of course, have its shortcomings,
you will not improve it by indulging in this kind of nonsense, which
appears to have become some kind of reflex. Your apparent assumption
that your idiotic behavior will make any difference to anything or
anybody is arrogant beyond belief. This is a real pity, as your web site
makes it apparent that in matters where you possess genuine knowledge
you can produce worthwhile work.
Please abandon any notion that your own writings are in any way superior
to the object of your complaints. At least I can learn Python from the
documentation. From you I can learn nothing, you are so self-absorbed
that it would take a pneumatic drill to penetrate that thick skull.
