reply-all may send duplicate messages to the author. Not sure of this list.

I use Thunderbird and access python-list as a newsgroup via 
news.gmane.org as gmane.comp.python.general. About 200 other python 
mailing lists are accessible as g.c.p.xxx.

The first time one posts to a particular mailint list, the post is held 
until one replies to a email sent to the 'from:' address. This cuts spam 
tremendously.  Otherwise, no signup seems to be needed.
