I agree. There are times when stuff that obviously has no place on this
list appears but in almost every case it is gone within a short time if
allowed to die a natural death. It seems to me that the most
irritating, least useful content is usually threads like this one,
started in an effort to overhaul something that only needs a tuneup.
Perhaps a periodic broadcast of succinctly stated policies on acceptable
topics, prior research, lucidity of questions, etc., ending with a
suggestion that the OT stuff be silently ignored *on-list* would be
enough to restore this list to showcase it once was.
