Sounds interesting, but I get a "page not found 404" type error when
I follow this link.

That's because you are reading the list via Gmane, which is set to
mangle email addresses to avoid spammers (the setting is specific to
each mailing list, so you might not see it on other lists), and
mail-archive URLs happen to contain the email address of the list.

To follow the URL, replace the part

  matplotlib-users-random-garbage <at> public.gmane.org

with

  matplotlib-users <at> lists.sourceforge.net

(where I am writing <at> instead of @ to evade the gmane mangler).

I wonder if URL-escaping the at sign helps:

http://www.mail-archive.com/matplotlib-users%40lists.sourceforge.net/msg10873.html

Right you are! I hadn't even noticed this in the URL, it's quite
evident in the address fields when I use Thunderbird to reply to
postings.

Thanks a lot for pointing this out.
