Held? It's not a moderated group...

Your mail to 'Python-list' with the subject

Is being held until the list moderator can review it for approval.

The reason it is being held:

* * Message has a suspicious header

Nope. IIRC, Jacobean English first person doesn't add a suffix
onto the verb, so it's the same as modern English: "I quote".
The "eth" suffix is used for the third-person singular form of
regular verbs: "He quoteth".

Ah yes. I forgot that some of the postings to
comp.lang.pythong are gatewayed from a mailing list. I still
don't get why anybody would choose e-mail over an NNTP server
for stuff like this.

I don't even use e-mail for the mailing lists I do subscribe
to: www.gmane.org. If a mailing list refuses to be carried by
gmane, I figure I can do without it. [There was one mailing
list of the dozen or so that I used to subscribe to that
refused to be carried by gmane. That mailing list now does
without me.]

You're probably trying to post through the python-list email address,
which has had SPAM problems in the past, because the email address has
been used by spammers as a forged from address, meaning the bounces
would go to everyone, including being gateway'ed to comp.lang.python,
which is the NNTP group in which many people read this "list".

Have you tried using an NNTP client instead, or using a web interface
such as Google Groups?

Take a look at the source of XL's messages: he posts through Google
Groups, thus completely avoiding the SPAM filter on python.org.
