I called out Bieber years ago for his X-NO-ARCHIVE business and nobody else seemed to care. In fact, the mood at the time was more negative towards me for calling it out than towards Dennis. Sorry i don't have a link to the thread, but i'm sure a determined person could find it. It was probably somewhere between 2008 and 2010. > If something is worth saying, why not let people find it > later? That has always been my opinion as well. And if i remember correctly, Dennis said something to effect of (paraphrasing) "I don't want my words achived so that someone can leverage my words against me for nefarious reasons" "Nefarious reasons"? Paranoid or lame? You decide. -- https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list
