These people, including myself, aren't trolls nor minions. They just
don't agree with you.

And on the topic of IDLE, I agree the coding's not great, but I
disagree with it being a problem for the Python community. I've never,
ever seen a thread saying "OMG, WHAT DOES THIS IDLE SOURCE CODE
EXTRACT MEAN? PLEASE HELP, I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IDLE, THEREFORE I CAN
NOT USE Tkinter! I'm leaving Python, Visual Basic's for me from now
on! NO DAMN IDLE TO MESS UP EVERYTHING, YOU SEE?"
