SPAM again [was: Re: .BIZ .INFO domain extensions]

Hi, people.  We still get SPAM from this list once in a while, which is
annoying.  I wonder if something could be done about it at the list level.

I noticed that two recent SPAM were sent to `python-list at cwi.nl' instead of
`python-list at python.org', so we might think of ruling out that old address.
On the other hand, valid postings are still made to the `cwi.nl' address,
even if rarely.  I fear some members might find rude being forced to switch
to `python.org'.  And besides, I'm sure `python.org' will get included
in all spammers' lists, sooner or later, so this would be just postponing
the real problem.  Sigh!

My attitude about SPAM, and am not sure I am fully right, is that I rely
on mailing lists to filter the SPAM they get before forwarding it to me,
while I consider this is more my responsibility to filter the rest, which
directly gets addressed to me without going through mailing lists.

Opinions?  Suggestions?
