I like many others have had the same experience.
I recently choose to respond to one of Xha Lee's post and my
Re (to the same subject line) post
was bounced. I inquired to the
Python-list-owner. Here was the response:
->Python.org uses several techniques to filter out spam. The one that
->affected you was Spambayes (check http://www.spambayes.org for more
->information). This uses known spam and non-spam (ham) messages and
->statistical methods to determine whether a given message is likely spam
->or ham, or whether it can't tell. If it can't tell, it adds a header to
->the message which triggers the next step in the filtering chain to hold
->the message for manual review. This is what happened to your message.
So maybe we have answered the question of how the blankty blank
with all the f this and f that does Xha Lee's posts get through.
I postulate that he uses a script (written in mathematica
of course...humm...wonder why he never includes the mathematica list in
his cross posts) that randomly generates his subject line from
his favorite topics. He does this till he sees the post appear.
