Are you saying that this group is only for "serious" programmers?

"serious" is also a matter of opinion.  I have some serious
programmer friends who maintain, in complete sincerity, that
serious programmers should not waste time on slow, script-kiddie
languages like Python, but should be developing their skills 
with serious professional languages like Java, C#, etc.
