Well, failing anything else that is what I'll do, although I am a little
tentative about mailing any mailing list after the thousands of subscribe
failure notices I was sent (when I didn't subscribe).

I'm no goody two shoes but I doubt a tech minded enemy is doing this to me,
it doesn't make any sense.

Oh well I'm going to bite the bullet and try to unsubscribe. I do have
options (mail block etc) but I thought you guys would want to know about
things like this, and frankly I was curious why it happened so I could stop
it happening again.

I realise that this is not the fault of python.org or mailman, but somehow
my signing up to a list with python.org instigated a bizarre mixup or attack
via sardy5@graffiti.net

My thanks to all those who have looked into this.
