You know...

I think I just realized where a big part of my misperception of the Python
community was.

Which is that until todayish, I had not realized that he was regarded as a
troll by the rest of the community.  But now that a couple of people have
told me this, I am a lot more comfortable referring to the Python community
in general as "welcoming".

I sometimes enjoy trying to extract information from people like that, but
I will respect the preferences of the actually-helpful people and drop that
line of inquiry.  :)
