Do you feel bad because of the Python docs?

One week ago, "JoePie91" wrote a blog post challenging the Python
community and the state of Python documentation, titled:
"The Python documentation is bad, and you should feel bad".
It is valuable to contrast and compare the PHP and Python docs:
There's no doubt that one of PHP's strengths, perhaps its biggest
strength, is the good state of documentation. But should we feel bad
about Python's docs? I don't think that either the Python documentation
or community is as bad as JoePie91 suggests. (Well, I won't speak for the
people on Freenode's #python. It took me approximately three minutes to
be banned from there, with no warning or explanation.)
