There is a difference between not understanding why things are as you
are told, and
assuming because you don't understand, what you are told is wrong.
Instead of trying
to understand, you started to dispute.

That is because you started to argue instead of trying to ask for

Yes, you made a mistake. You relied on a specific example where things
turned out as you
expected. But what you expect is not within the language specification.
If next time you
try out an other python implementation, there is no guarantee this will
still work as
you expect. That you think you can infer general behaviour from your
limited experience
is a mistake.
