I am using Emacs 27.2 on a Mac OS with Steve Purcell's configuration. I have got some visual vertical bars for Python files. How can they be removed?

I am not using Purcell's configuration, but you can disable that with a simple setting (setq display-fill-column-indicator nil) placed at the end of your init file - or search your configuration file for the item display-fill-column-indicator and comment it.

Note this may be useful warning for/when you write long lines and breaking Python standards.
