That is just mailman (the mailing list software) keeping track of
things. If there were a bounce, mailman can determine from the address
of the bounce message (the bounce gets sent back to the Sender, not the
From) which address bounced.
So *all* python-list messages you get have that Sender.
In other words, these spams do not come from you.
