The thread was clearly identified as off-topic. I didn't take it off topic; this isn't the first time this list has had off-topic posts, and I suspect we can find several occasions on which a discussion on this list has gone further off topic for a longer period of time. I find it odd that this brief stray off topic wouldn't be tolerated when longer posts in longer threads on more-off-topic subjects have been tolerated.
Also, it has relevance for this list in so far as it pertains to exchange of ideas on this list.
