I didn't say he was banned from the Python list.  He has been banned 
from the issue tracker, possibly other places, I'm not sure.  He refuses 
point blank to contribute to core python because he will not sign the 
CLA. One rather well known core dev refused point blank to contribute to 
the core workflow mailing list because of him.

Oh, and please do not tell me to back off.  It has been show in recent 
days that despite my problems I have contributed to core Python. 
Anatoly will contribute to any project, but on his terms, and his terms 
only.  I have never done any such thing, and wouldn't even contemplate it.

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