Don't panic, there are plenty of experts here :-)

It's an oft-cited troll complaint that many python big-wigs (Guido,
Raymond H, et al) don't subscribe to python-list.

Personally I've never really noticed - even if some of the core devs
don't really hang out here, I've always found python-list full of
helpful and knowledgeable people.

It's also an oft-cited troll conspiracy that Guido hangs out on
python-list and posts under various pseudonyms.  I think it would be
kinda fun if he did...
