And I respect your opinion, Jeebs.

Not very well, obviously.

Sounds like being a lexicographer is a fantasy of yours, Jeebs.

But in fact I do not have a clear understanding of what it means, 
Jeebs, but I know that it's a common term. 

You are not a lexicographer, dude.

That might have been clear to most normal people in my first reply
to the first follow-up. 

"I am using Windows XP SP3. Komodo Edit 6 for editing the *.py

already figured out that I need a keyboard hook. The answer 
doesn't matter anymore.

Are you a master of terminology on wikishit, Jeebs? I think 
wikishit sucks. Wannabe lexicographers like you might be a reason. 
I've dealt with some real lexicographers, Jeebs, you aren't one.
