I'm surprised you find an "hostile" place with no "tolerance to 
newbies", since it known for being one of the most friendly and helpful 
newsgroups on the comp.* usenet hierarchy - FWIW, may I quote some lines 
of a recent thread here ?
Thanks guys, I really appreciate it. I have never used google groups
and am so impressed with how helpful you all are. It is also lovely
none of you mock my little knowledge of Python but just want to
improve it.

Also, please notice there's mailing-list for CS-newbies 
(, and quite a few web 
forums, starting with, so I'm not sure a new one 
is really that useful.

My 2 cents...
