I don't know whether it's ironic or in some way Pythonesque, but this
is the only mailing list that I've seen significant amounts of spam
on...

Maybe spam filters have trouble distinguishing between Monty Python
and unsolicited commercial email?

    My impression is that there is much more spam on comp.lang.python than on the archives of Python-list, so it seems the gateway is catching a lot of it:

    Bear in mind that the mailing list has a bidirectional gateway to the
    comp.lang.python newsgroup.

    Where google groups is a perennial source of garbage.

    Personally, I see almost zero spam in "this group" (reading it in
    comp.lang.python). That's attributable in part to my News provider
    filtering out stuff and in part to my .score file entry that
    automatically discards anything posted via groups.google.com.
