Indeed.  I read about 20 mailing lists by pointing a newsreader (I use
slrn) at gmane.org.  I find it to take far less effort than actualling
having all of those messages actually sent to me.  For _some_ of the
gmane groups/lists you will actually have to subscribe to the mailing
list in question if you want to be allowed to post messages -- but in
your account settings for that mailing list server you can turn off
delivery, so that it doesn't actually send you any of the postings.

I really can't recommend gmane.org highly enough.

[I don't actually read the python list using gmane.org, since I've
read it from a Usenet news server via the group comp.lang.python since
long before I discovered gmane.org.]
