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!
