Google Groups is poison. If you post with it, you will be ignored by a 
large percentage of the regulars here.

Good options are:

- Use the official email mailing list instead of news:

  http://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list

  Do yourself (and us) a HUGE favour and use regular mail, not daily
  digests.

- If you prefer Usenet, and your ISP gives you access to comp.lang.python,
  use that.

- If not, there are many cheap Usenet providers you can try.

- Try http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.python.general


Bad options are:

- Absolutely anything to do with Google Groups. It's a crap user-
  interface, posts don't follow established standards for email and news,
  and Google requires you to sign in just to read the archives, which in
  my opinion is morally indefensible.
