Do you feel bad because of the Python docs?

Not at all. Over the past 15 years I have make 1000s of polite helpful 
responses to perhaps 100s of different people. Others have done much the 
same. The fact that I am hostile to and occasionally make an exception 
to not responding to lying troll rants does not at all prove his lie. 
Indeed, Joe did not post here, and I was not speaking to him. I intended 
my complete post to be overall helpful to people who do read here. If 
Joe ever does post a polite question here, I hope and expect he would 
get a polite response.
