Why is the super().__init__() comment dead below me? In Python 2 you had to do something like super(ClassName, self).__init__(), which is more ridiculous.

This could be because someone flagged the comment. If you believe there’s been a mistake you can vouch for a comment from comment’s page. I did vouch for x14 already—being able to shorten parent’s method calls into super().methodname() minor syntax sugar though it may be is one of the things I’m really looking forward to when I switch to Python 3 at my agency.
