I looked at the site. Indeed, the ad and site are difficult to understand what the owner is promoting. The individual dislikes python, git, and several other products. I could not tell what he actually likes, though. He will not have much impact on python.

Several times while working in gmail's web UI I've seen a sponsored link running across the top of the page, just above the buttons, with the following text:

   No Python - - Yes, python syntax is totally broken. Why? Learn now!    Sponsored Link

I took a screenshot in case anyone is interested.

'Sponsored Link' implies someone paid money to show this ad...weird. It doesn't look like a professional site and pretty much debunks itself through vulgarity and ignorance.
