@anon, sorry, but we can't accept any code from you unless you have a real name and fill out a contributor agreement:

This is legal crud, and I'm not a lawyer.  But, in particular, lawyers have told me that - in the USA - an individual cannot meaningfully put anything in "the public domain".  That's what I used to do - until a lawyer strongly advised me to stop that and use an actual license.

In any case, it's most likely that Python developers won't even look at your code in the absence of a contributor agreement.  If we did, the slight chance of Bad Consequences (e.g., someone we only knew as "anon" sues us for stealing their ideas) outweighs the slight benefit we might get from stealing your ideas ;-)
