Thank you.

Which is why it was labeled off-topic (OT:).  Difficult to understand?

Rather than getting your undies in a bunch, why not just hit the Delete
button when you see a Subject line starting with "OT:"?

Alternatively, there are a variety of ways to filter mail by the
contents of the Subject line (and other parameters) programmatically.
Do this and you'd never have to see an "OT:" labeled message again in
your entire life.

Judging from past experience, I guess we're now to enjoy three or four
days of posts about OT posts (as opposed to perhaps four replies
actually relevant to the original post).

Finally, I'd suggest a list convention whereby if someone wishes to
discuss/dispute tangential issues of this kind, they should prepend the
words "[Thread Cop]" to the Subject line.
