I was actually referring to the SpamBayes home page at
which doesn't contain the word "Python" anywhere in its body text -
though as I did point out, the title of the page *does*. Sorry about the
lack of clarity.
I don't have any problem at all with the site, and I know that SpamBayes
does actually reflect kudos on the Python language in many people's minds.
