Ha ha ha ha, did RR actually say that???

How cute, he thinks "kill file" means murder.

Anyway, fun's over... can we all just ignore his childish rants and 
trolling? You (generic you, not Alex specifically) are only rewarding him 
for bad behaviour with the attention he craves. If you won't do it for 
me, do it for your future job prospects. Any future employer who googles 
you will see you arguing for *days* with a troll. That isn't saying much 
for your ability to distinguish productive from unproductive tasks :/

Hey Rick, back in June 2010 you promised to fork Python and split the 
community into the silent majority who support you and the "ivory towers" 
who disagree with you. How's that working out for you?
