NB : answering the OP (original post didn't show up on c.l.py ???)

You mean, inside a method ?

In Python, a "class method" is a method that operates on the class
object itself instead of operating on an instance of the class.

It's obviously false, cf MRAB's answer.
Correct. There's a problem with the mail->news gateway, I think that
MIME messages are failing. I "fixed" the problem for c.l.py.announce by
making the list reject non-ASCII messages, but I don't think that's an
option for python-list.

Hu, I see. FWIW, it's not the first time I observe this (posts not
showing up, only answers...), but at least I now know why. Well, I guess
it might be possible to have the gateway "extract" the text part from
MIME messages, but I'm not sure I'd volunteer to work on this... Just
out of curiousity, where can I find more infos on this gateway ?
It's part of Mailman, so that's where you should start.
