I don't see how you could feel the least bit justified.  Well meaning,
if unhelpful, lies about the nature Python strings in order to try to
convince someone to follow what you think are good programming practices
is one thing.  Maliciously lying about someone else's code that you've
never seen is another thing entirely.
