You're welcome to point to something on the web that doesn't show 
all the raw headers as a reason to accuse me of lying.  However 
if you want the raw headers as they show up here (via Gmane's 
NNTP) see below or go visit Gmane with your NNTP client of choice 
or see on their web interface[1] that it has .nz as your TLD. 
Said leakage comes from you.  Or perhaps Gmane lies as much as I 
do... ;-)

This

<http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2010-November/1260153.html> 

would seem to be an independent, true record of what members of 
python-list
would see of my posting, would it not? You would agree that it 
shows my e-
mail address as obfuscated, would you not? So if you claim to be 
seeing an
unobfuscated e-mail address for my posting on python-list, you 
would be
lying, would you not?
