Just testing

I am just testing, as I need to create a filter.

Sounds like he probably gets this group as email through the
mailing list, but it's still rude to impose on the thousands
of other readers (tens of thousands?) for his own minor
convenience like that.

In this case, the best thing to do is to ask a real question that you're
not actually interested in and that will be easily answered, or start a
flamewar :-) The benefit of the latter is that you get *lots* of posts
to test your filter on...

Ah, you've caught on! comp.lang.python is actually just one big
test group. There are no real questions. Most of the respondents
are actually bots, auto-generating their replies. You don't think
anyone would be crazy enough to actually spend their own time
answering useless questions that are just used to test filters,
do you?
