By contrast, an excessively large sig (particularly an excessively large  
sig without a proper separator) is something that's guaranteed to get on  
my wick, and usually indicates someone I don't want to bother listening  
to.  Thank you for trimming it.

I'm reading this as the comp.lang.python newsgroup, straight off an NNTP  
server, and to be honest I'm not getting the level of spam you are talking  
about.  There's some, sure -- usually for Bollywood actress pictures --  
but not enough to make me worry about Opera's relatively poor newsgroup  
filtering facilities.  If you're getting as much as you say, it's being  
injected on the mail side of the gateway somehow.
