No offense taken.  It's definitely OT.  I left it here because 1)
comp.lang.python seems pretty lax about going OT when it's related to the
thread, which in this case it was, and 2) the general discussion about what
constitutes a community seemed kinda useful.

That said, I definitely think the discussion has run its course.  It's
getting dangerously close to flaming at this point, which indicates it's
time to go offline.
