Historically this list has been tolerant of off-topic threads, likely
because such threads have tended to be short-lived.
However, the off-topic posters (and I have been guilty myself) seem
to have taken this to mean that this list is appropriate for any and
all discussions by users of Debian. I would doubt that was the
original intent of the spirit of the phrase "Help and discussion
among users of Debian".
I would urge the off-topic posters to return to the spirit of the
phrase, and please wind down your off-topic posts, and then strive to
keep your posts a bit closer to Debian-related topics.
I agree. I, too, have been guilty of posting way too many off-topic
messages. I intend to be more circumspect in future, and ask that
others do likewise.
