From Manhattans last night, here is the RestrictedPython library we're building some nice stuff on, in case people check here and not twitter: https://github.com/zopefoundation/RestrictedPython

To be clear, I'm not saying that there was some organized campaign around these lines (in re: prop-A), just that these were obviously and blatantly incorrect opinions subscribed to by wealthy members of the regional elderly elite. Not even sure what one does about such steadfastly and earnestly held but completely wrong belief.
The level of disinformation about proposal A is astonishing. Several people today expressed a very earnest belief that it's passage would mean an expansion for our wonderful library (which attentive readers will recall this same lobby successfully shot down!), and/or that the mayor would have profited personally as the developer of the proposed building on the site. These are things that they came to believe not from Fox News, but apparently from fellow A2ites.
