I don't mind the periodic off-topic posts. Occasionally, a thread will stray into areas better suited for other newsgroups. I've posted off-topic myself from time to time. But usually such threads die out after 10 or 15 posts at the most. The last week or so I've been getting almost 200 posts a day from the ExI list and 80%+ are guns/property material. I think its time to take these discussions elsewhere. Elsewise, my kill file will begin to grow.
