You can have both.  Point your NNTP client at news.gmane.org and
subscribe to gmane.comp.python.general.

That said, I never noticed any more spam on c.l.p than on the mailing
list.  I assume that's because my Usenet provider (Panix.com) filtered
it out.  I switched from Usenet to Gmane mainly because references
headers are bit more consistent on Gmane, so threading works somewhat
better.

[Regardless of whether I'm using Usenet or Gmane, I have slrn
configured to plonk all posts made from google.groups.]
