Are you new?  Meta discussions about lists are generally considered
on-topic for the list.

Yes, I am.  That however is NOT on topic.  :-)

And just to bring this back on topic, I did do a test and found that
splitting my mailbox between Python mailing list messages and Python
newsgroup messages did not indicate that that was a good barometer of
spaminess.  There are also quite a few decent posts from so
blocking by that domain isn't going to be the problem solver either.
