While I would comply, or attempt to, with whatever the policy becomes, I 
would like to say that I love some of the tangential material.  Yes, there 
is some that doesn't belong here at all, such as non-computerized guns, 
non-computerized cars, and politics/religion/The-Great-Pumpkin.

But much of the stuff that is tangential, but related to classic 
computers, such as long threads about character encoding schemes, 
is fascinating, and I'm learning a lot.  My own "contributions" may be 
useless, but there are some people here who are providing informative 

The basic design of CCTALK/CCTECH is great - one section strictly 
on-topic, and another section that permits tangential content.  It's 
too bad that there seems to have been difficulties keeping it working 

Can I just say, "Keep up the good work!"?
