Anyone with a newsreader can, like me, read gmane.comp.python.general, 
which mirrors python-list, which now filters out much/most of the spam 
on c.l.p from G.g.

To post from g.c.p.g, one must use a real email address and respond once 
  to an email sent to that address.

So, the only reason to use c.l.p is if one wants to post anonymously, 
like the spammers do ;-).
