In my personal opinion, as a long-time subscriber, "linguistic curiosities"
are not far enough off-topic to be very objectionable on this list. The
range of topics on any list is usually controlled by the average level of
tolerance among the subscribers.

Discussions of air speeds of unladen swallows and the myriad home uses of
plate tectonics are pretty far off-topic. Italian dialects are not.
