I find this list to be quite on topic, as compared to other lists I
use to hear from. Although the said Python list, while perfectly on
topic, has also huge noise/info problem. Not the problem with this
list, from which I am learning a lot.

Speaking of problem with offtopic posts, since I am not sure when was
last time I have read the brunt thread (before the one we speak
about), perhaps making lots of fuss will also make the problem bigger
than it really is?
