Without question you are the most appalling person who should by 
definition be excluded from the Python community.  You refuse point 
blank to contribute to the bug tracker, you've already been banned from 
several mailing lists, but still you have the audacity to ask for help. 
  How dare you?

@Rick Johnston considering the above and the fact that I have spoken up 
in support of you in the past regarding your knowledge of tkinter/IDLE, 
I'm perfectly happy to call a truce regarding our litle spiff over the 
last couple of days.  Virtual handshake over the Atlantic Ocean?

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask
what you can do for our language.
