This is a rather old thread, revived now by Mr Schremmer.  The thread  
had started with somebody asking "off topic" whether the correct  
plural is "matrixes" or "matrices", then somebody else had complained  
that there's too much OT stuff floating around the list and they're  
getting drowned in it or something.  My addition to the thread (which  
seems that now, out of its context, gets a bit misinterpreted) had  
merely argued that off-topic stuff is just fine.  On one hand,  
there's plenty of stuff floating around the list that each and every  
one of us ignore anyway, so it's hard to see how some extra OT stuff  
is going to drown anybody;  furthermore, if it's labeled "OT" (as the  
original post was), then it's even less of a problem (for those  
offended by such deviation from the list's focus) as it is easy to  
filter such messages out, if one so wishes.  That was all I meant  
back then.

Sorry, I had to clarify, I just couldn't let my precious thoughts be  
misunderstood  :-)

Have a Merry Something and a Happy New Whatever,
