I can read your edits. I hope you are aware of that.
“Ok- so you, a Python veteran who has been using Blender (and Blender Python) for years - typed code into the text editor and clicked Run and are now confused about why that code was executed? Something doesn’t add up, and it’s not the documentation or a lack of examples. Look man, I’m not trying to break you down or something- I legitimately want to know how we as a development community, can improve the API documentation- but this is very much a PEBKAC issue.”
There is more than a PEBKAC here, there is a rotten attitude. Unbecoming behavior, and questioning what someone says like they are lying or something, then you think that it is OK to do it. That is a matter of respect, and if you do not give respect, don’t be surprized when the person you are talking to loses respect for you.
