Welcome to python-list/comp.lang.python!

This isn't originally a Google group. Google just mirrors the old USENET
group, which is awash with spam.

There is also a mailing list version of this group (posts are mirrored
both ways) at

The mailing list has proper spam filtering and some moderation. None (or
barely any) of the regulars use Google Groups. Some people use USENET
directly and maintain their own extensive filtering regime to make it
readable. Probably most of us use the mailing list, because it's just so
much nicer!
