You are right.  However, as was also pointed out previously, filtering
OT threads is relatively easy as many MUAs allow deleting an entire
subthread, and it is possible to filter based on the subject.

Joey did acknowledge the OT conversations were nearly always marked
accordingly, with only one appreciable thread of OT conversation which
was not properly marked.

In any case, it is becoming apparent that the continued OT discussions
are becoming increasingly unpopular.
