If you had searched the list you would have found that this topic has 
been discussed from time to time. The fact of the matter is that a lot 
of effort does go into spam filtering this list, and the residual spam 
that you see actually represents a very low false negative rate. You 
wouldn't believe how much spam gets sent to the active mailing lists and 
newsgroups.

If your own spam filtering is so good then maybe you should just 
subscribe to python-list instead of using a newsgroup, then your email 
filters will be applied to incoming articles from the list too.

Oh, I see you *are* using python-list. So how come your filters don't 
work for the spam that gets posted?
