Ugh, very well.  You call for an explanation.

Back home, the original post would be interesting, so I wrote it.
Whatever reactions other people have to them is information that is
unavailable to me.  I don't know you.  I'm rather irked by a
proportion of posts, but for my part, it's hard to get me to point a
finger.

I am not a troll.  I want a sustainable, healthy, productive,
educational, informative relationship with frequenters of c.l.p, the
Python community at large, and anyone who has anything non-negative to
contribute.  If you are wanting to see how I react to hostility, just
ask.  I'll fake it for you, but only for a second at a time.

Now, what help is it that you believe I seem to want?  All I asked for
was, ideas.
