Matěj, thanks for the suggestion. I haven't used Usenet in over a decade. I
may try using a Usenet reader if I feel like trying something new (actually
very old, but kind of unfamiliar to me from being not fresh in my head),
but for now, I'm going to use Gmail's filtering so I can prevent the
python-dev messages from being mixed with the other stuff in my inbox. If
that is somehow not good enough for me, after taking a few days or weeks to
get used to it, then I will try other ways of dealing with it.
