google-groups is an spamvertizing madhouse.  Many send any incoming that 
originates there to /dev/null. It looks like you got thru because 
they've registered a new name that doesn't quite match my procmail 
rules. But as long as it stays on topic I won't add it to the ruleset 
just yet.

Python does have its own mailing list, and if you are genuinely 
interested in python and aren't put off by snarky comments as students 
try to get somebody else to do their homework for them, please join that 
mailing list. From the headers of this message:

Precedence: list

List-Id: General discussion list for the Python programming language

List-Unsubscribe: <>,
 <mailto:python-list-request at>

List-Archive: <>

List-Post: <mailto:python-list at>

List-Help: <mailto:python-list-request at>

List-Subscribe: <>,
 <mailto:python-list-request at>

Subscribing to this list at the above address will do a lot of filtering 
for you. Ditch google-groups.
