Maybe we haven't been CCing you directly, just posting straight back to the 
list. Did you tick "Automatically subscribe me to email updates when I post to 
a topic" in the group settings?

This is one reason to prefer the mailing list. You can subscribe here:

  https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/python-list

Many of us prefer that to Google Groups. You have the advantage that email 
messages arrive to your GMail directly, instead of to the group. You can easily 
file messages from the list into its own folder (in GMail, this is called 
"apply a label").

Wait for the first message or so and for that message choose GMail's "filter 
messages like this" action. I like to choose "Apply the label Python" and "Skip 
the inbox" for such things. Then you'll get a nice little "Python" mail folder 
in your collection where the list will accumulate. And less spam than the 
Group.
