Python script error, check console

Attention All Scripters: Notice of PROHIBITED Behavior

If you see a popup that looks like this

Python script error, check console

it is FORBIDDEN to check the console and read the error message there.

It is also FORBIDDEN to report the error message when you ask for help in the forums.

One of the recurring stories here goes like this:
A: My script has an error!
B: What was the error message?
A: I don’t know, I didn’t read it.

In order to put an end to this sort of comic buffoonery, I figure it is time try a little reverse psychology. Hey, it might work!
