spam update

P: n/a
With some help from the python.org postmasters over the weekend I figured
out why some seemingly obvious spam messages seem to be making it to the
py*********@python.org mailing list. Messages gatewayed from Usenet don't
pass through the spam filters. Mailman simply distributes them. There is
still no resolution, but at least I understand the cause now. For now,
mailing list users please be patient as we try to resolve this issue.

Thanks,

Thanks for looking into this
Google needs to blacklist email address from posting here if the post
is obivously spam.
i have been flagging every post i see that is a spam,
and every body else needs to do the same.
Thanks
