This question has hundreds of answers, many of which are probably dupes. I'm actually amazed that it's still alive, considering the "let's close them polls" of the last few months (weeks?). The question fits more in programmers.SE than here, but given their strictness, I don't even know if it will survive there. I personally find it constructive (though so many of the answers are of low quality, without any reason why Guido van Rossum is admired, for example).
So my question is, how come it's still alive?
