Why not just open a separate gmail address? And use it for comp lang
python only?

I find it much more convenient to browse to

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python

than to wade through emails. You can read and post or just quickly scan
for new stuff of interest. Also, the search box is invaluable.

Meanwhile, back at the gmail account, the spam filters aren't perfect,
but they do a pretty good job and, as I say, I'm mostly reading and
posting via the Goggle Group. So I don't really care if spam
accumulates back at my gmail address.

If they still require invitations, I'll send you one :)
