I'm usually pretty quiet on this list.  That's what I find is the  
best way to participate.  However, I'm going to have to speak up and  
point out that that response is exactly the type of comment and/or  
reasoning that everyone here is trying to explain to you.  The  
resources are available for you to educate yourself.  Semantic  
arguments such as this are, at best, at a junior high level.  You are  
completely free to ask any question (about Python) you want here --  
just don't argue with the people giving you the answers.  And, to  
address the actual content of that response:  nobody, online or off,  
in newsgroups or on mailing lists, likes a nitpick.  So, please,  
quit.  I'd prefer you didn't leave and, instead, decided to actually,  
actively get along with the others here.  I think some of the  
question you've begun threads with have been both good and valid.   
It's just that you need some work on your e-people skills, man.
