The third time I sent it using a different email account, so it didn't
tickle the blacklist. Then the message was blocked by Mailman, for
"non-member posting to a moderated list". Luckily, I'm a list admin for
this list, so I was able to approve it myself. All this joy just so
python.org clients can remain ignorant of how small their penises really are

This is encouraging, but I don't think it's quite yet time to reveal that
it's all part of my plan to become an unstoppable spammer.
