I am a little disturbed that there are no moderators,
mostly because I received an email back from the list"Your mail to
'Python-list' with the subject. Above and beyond, critique request. Is being
held until the list moderator can review it for approval. The reason it is
being held: Message body is too big: 41670 bytes with a limit of 40
KB. Either the message will get posted to the list, or you will receive
notification of the moderator's decision.  If you would like to cancel
this posting, please visit the following URL:"

So does this mean it will never actually be reviewed?

Thanks
Vincent Davis
