In the News "An incident at the annual Python developer conference has led to allegations of sexism, death threats, the firings of two people, and - apparently - multiple DDoS (distributed denial-of-service) attacks." Absolutely bizarre.

.. and the true nature of all the Python ****wads.

Yeah, because judging everyone based on the behaviour of one person is awesome.

Let's just say there's a reason any projects I had involving Python were shitcanned

Because you're no good with Python?

their raging hard-on for Python where they can stick it!

Cool story bro, please tell us more.

Considering I've got some three decades programming experience, with mastery of machine language on five processor platforms (6502, 6809, Z80, x86 and ARM), fluent in C, C++, Pascal, javascript, PHP and Perl... much less the various web markup languages -- this seems unlikely. I should even like Python -- I'm a stickler for code indentation.

But the community as a whole across multiple forums left me with such a sour taste in my mouth I don't want anything to do with it ever again. That's why I deep-sixed doing anything in Python moving one project to C++, one to FPC+Lazarus, one to just FPC (though that's on indefinite hold since it's for the Pi and it turns out when it comes to floating point it's not as fast as the 487 half of a DX4/100 even with VFP), and one other to PHP since that's just a CMS anyways.

... and I'm not alone in this -- see where Tor Chat is headed. Taking a page out of Skype's book and going to FPC+Lazarus.
