And knowing that, why not take more care with the tone of
your original post, or do more searching and/or lurking
before posting?

Your original post *could* be paraphrased as:
  I'm new to Python, Python doesn't have X, X is
  obviously a great feature can't you give me X
  in Python? P.S. Its obviously been debated before
  but I haven't looked - send me a link. I know this
  might start a flame war, but I'll ask anyway.

And sure enough, you then goad a regular *contributor*
to comp.lang.python .

I suggest you rephrase your question in a less
confrontational tone but only if you are interested
in civil answers.

- Paddy.
