My own experience is that the main Python group is
remarkably mature and uninfested with script-kiddies
and so on. I wouldn't say there are never spats, but
even those tend to be remarkably controlled, and often
informative (in a heated kind of way). By all means
stick to the UK list, but you might want to dip your
toe in the waters of the main list just to see...

There was talk of one recently, can't remember 
where, in addition to the usual Oxford one.
(Which I've never managed to get to!)
Does this mean you're based up there (says the
Londoner). 'Cos we seem to be going through
a phase of regular meetups in London at the
moment, ie getting together in a pub along
with various other interested parties. You
might want to come along... or organise a
northern equivalent!
