The last three URLs are malformed:

    There is no module in the standard library to handle filesystem paths
    in an OO way - but why?
       http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.pythonf580fb3763208425ece/

    A "History Channel" special: how the way a TAB key was interpreted
    changed over time
       http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.python82d9181fcd31ffea3f4/

    After a false start, finally we get our first "Is it Call-By-Value or
    Call-By-Reference?" thread of the year!
       http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.pythonfd36962c4970ac487ea/

Any chance of getting them fixed?

LOL.

Can we set up some sort of "argh" filter on python-list, analogous to a spam
filter, which detects these threads and shunts them to
(e-mail address removed)?

Because avoiding them is -hard-.

Oh no it isn't!

(Sorry; couldn't resist)

an OO way - but why?
