Your apathy towards Py2 will not shield you from the
collateral damage caused by it's demise.

What matters is what the *WORLD* thinks about Python. And if
the global "perception" is that: "Python is buggy", or that:
"the python community is fractured" -> then all hope in
widespread future adoption is gone! Then, both Py2 and Py3
die. Then, you will be forced to use another language? 


This is *NOT* about you, or me, this is about the
*PERCEPTION* of Python within the *ENTIRE* programming

I've never seen you before. Are you a regular hiding behind
a fake name?
