My personal approach is to add a filter for list messages as soon as they start 
to arrive. I suggested using GMail's "Filter messages like this" action (under 
the "More" button up the top) to:

- skip the inbox (removes the flood from your inbox)
- add the label Python (or python-list or whatever you like)

This is getting off topic for Python; we should take this off-list to personal 
email if you agree.

This question wants a separate thread of its own with a distinct subject line.  
That way people ignoring the current thread (google/groups/email) can see it 
and respond.
