One of the regulars on the list has posted a run-down of how to post
from Google Groups without annoying everyone, and among other things,
it recommends manually deleting all the blank lines. To my mind,
though, this would be insane and inane tedium. I recommend signing up
to the mailing list; see
http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list for details. (As
an aside, the mailing list is run by Mailman, which is written in
Python. So we use Python to discuss Python.)
