On what grounds are you suppressing debate?  It is exactly and precisely 
not irrelevant to Python, since it's discussing a Python-specific change 
to known and understood computing terminology, and frankly the statement 
"Continued considerate posts will be discarded" is outrageous.

I have been unimpressed with the moderation team for some weeks now, but 
this is just not acceptable.
