Apologize for what? 

For telling the truth? 

I have been using IDLE since around 2006, well at least,
that is as far back as i remember. When i first learned
Python, IDLE was my editor of choice, and i *STILL* use IDLE
to this very day! -- although not as much as i have written
my own IDE.

I have logged thousands upon thousands of hours with IDLE,
how many hours have *YOU* logged?

I would even venture to say, and the comments on this list
have supported my evidence for years, that i may be the
*SOLE* heavy user of IDLE in the *ENTIRE* community.
Although, i need to compare my stats with Terry because he
claims to use the software quite often also.

If *ANYBODY* in this damn community has a *RIGHT* to
complain about IDLE, then *I* am that person. HOW DARE YOU
chastise me for voicing my grievances regarding a
software that *YOU* most likely have *NEVER*, or only 
*SLIGHTLY*, used!
