I think it'd be really neat to have a mutt-ot <at> mutt.org list, so we have a
natural place to take any thread that strays from Mutt-relevant material.
A lot of guys on both mutt-users and mutt-dev get very annoyed when
threads get off-topic, but there's no official place for people to take
those discussions (unless you wanna tell 'em to "take it to the <whatever>
list" and that's simply not practical, as all those who want to follow
the conversation don't really want to subscribe to yet another list
(and then worry about unsubscribing), just to follow one thread).
Having an official "take it there" list keeps everybody happy, since those
who want to follow the thread can subscribe to the -ot list. Those who
like to follow all threads can remain subscribed to the -ot list all the
time. Those who want nothing to do with any of it can avoid subscribing
to the -ot list, and heckle people with "take it to the -ot list!"
Thanks for hearing me out,
Uncle Cosmo, why do they call this a word processor?
It's simple, Skyler. You've seen what food processors do to food, right?
