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.
