I stand by what I said. Members, plural, of this list. I didn't say
"all members of", ergo the word "some" is superfluous, yet not
needful, as Princess Ida put it.

In any case, the fact remains that a number of this list's best
responders have killfiled Google Groups posters as a whole.
Consequently, GG forces you to go to quite a bit of extra work AND
prevents your message from getting through to everyone. Why go to
extra work to get a worse result? I am therefore not going to
recommend Google Groups to anyone as a means of posting to
python-list/c.l.p, any more than I would recommend writing it on a
Post-It note and feeding it into your floppy drive.
