So instead of taking the time to learn Python, which would've made this 
an easy project, you are just going to keep trying stuff until something 
And you're getting us to help you to brute-force this problem, when the 
actual purpose of this list is to help people learn python?
I don't see any reason why I should continue to reply to you, or why 
anyone else should, for that matter.
It's frustrating that this deluge of messages from you, that you could 
honestly solve yourself in a few minutes if you had any desire 
whatsoever to learn, is getting in the way of people who are actually 
trying to learn.  Not only by way of taking up the exceptional tutors' 
(Alan, Kent, etc) time reading and rereading the same problem you have 
over and over, that is slightly different, but also that I (and likely 
others) get pretty peeved when you aren't picking up on the obvious 
hints that everyone's dropping that you should stop working on this 
project until you learn the fundamentals of programming in Python.

I feel my time has been wasted, because every e-mail I send to you that 
has constructive advice, you just ignore.
Answers, answers, solutions, solutions!
That's not what we do here!
We give you hints and guidance so you can solve the problems yourself, 
so that you can _understand_ them, and so that you will know how to 
solve the next problem that arises that is similar.  Yet all I've seen 
from you is slightly different problems cropping up over and over, and 
obvious fundamental lack of understanding not only of the method in 
which to implement a solution to a problem, but also in formulating a 
solution in the first place.

The previous e-mail of this nature I wrote was significantly less 
coarse, but more detailed in the manner in which you could proceed, so 
that you would learn properly, and it went ignored.  Do I have your 

(Apologies to Alan et. al. for my tactlessness.)
