DISEMVOWELing in Python Collections

I don't understand why my code is being rejected, in this Code Challenge. They said we could resolve it however we liked. And this works. I really don't see where is the problem. Can someone help?

def remove_all_vowels():
    word = list(input("Write any word you like: "))
    print("Your selected word is now: ", word)
    while True:
        vowel = input("Please insert the vowel you would like to be removed.\n(Vowels = a, e, i, o, u or A, E, I, O, U)\n> ")
        def disemvowel(word):
            except ValueError:
            return word
        if vowel.upper() == "NONE":
            print("Your final word, without vowels, is: ", word)
        print("You now have: ", word)

Why doesn't you code work? Well, let's see...

  • Why is your function called remove_all_vowels and not disemvowel?
  • Why are you inputting the word?
  • Why are you printing the result?
  • And a bajillion other reasons...
