As with so many other things, a concept of reasonableness and common sense
comes into play. The grey cat theory, as it were.
I see value in having a mailing list devoted to Centos; that's why I'm here. I
further see no large problems here with off-topic postings. This doesn't mean
that I see no off-topic postings here but the volume is not out-of-hand and the
topics covered are still generally interesting to the kind of folks who
subscribe to this kind mailing list.
On the other hand, there is of course a potential that the list could be taken
over by off-topic posts. And we're back to the grey cat.
Reasonable off-topic posts aren't a problem. Problematic off-topic posts are a
problem. Drawing the line could be interesting, but most people can spot that
cat even if they can't define it. Then we'll drag it out and shoot it!
