Python-list (and gmane) readers do not see and hence never notice the 
spam that gets blocked -- about 90%. Since essentially identical 
messages have appeared before, probably from the same sender, I tweaked 
the settings a bit.

The few spam messages that do make it to the list should almost always 
be ignored and not kept alive by responses.

One would have to be ignorant and/or foolish to think that spammers read 
responses on any of the many lists they spam. So any response is 
directed at the non-spammer readers. Obnoxious responses like that above 
constitute trolling.
