Thank you Alexandre, for being the ONE PICLister who bothered to change the
[PIC]: to and [OT]: when your post was off topic!

Now, if all you other children could just learn to be like Alexandre...

Ahem, I changed it to [OT], and got a friendly flame warning about
message 051720a (clearly tagged [OT] ) for my troubles, :-P

That <was> a private comment.
Now, it's apparently an appropriate discussion on the piclist?

Make that 40 lists.

Groups I belong to are "looked after" rather than managed
or administrated in the PIClist sense. And often not very well

Or the gentle-flame-bot could recognise that the only valid tag in
this subject is [OT]:

Subject:                Re: [OT]: [PIC Bitscope

Not beautiful but valid.

Yeah, my listcop antennae are not adequately tuned to the tags still.  I
did gripe about it once today, but should have followed up with more, I
guess.

How many have nearly 2K subscribers, aerage nearly a hundred messages a
day at times, AND permit off-topic ramblings?  I know I don't want to be
the one cracking the whip about list protocol here, I'd much rather code
and solder.

Umm, actually, I also changed the tag in my 'Bitscope' post from [PIC] to
[OT].

And yet, I still got sent this:

{Quote hidden}

Considering myself a reasonably good member of the internet society, I'm
rather offended to have received this, especially since I was one of few who
actually adhered to the list rules.

Still, it's an honest mistake. I'm eternally grateful for this invaluable
resource the admins provide for us.

Trevor (clueless)

Maybe it was too OT for [OT]? :o)

I don't blame you for being offended, it's an offensive email.  If this
email was written to try and guide people into using the topic tags
correctly, then whoever wrote this needs the "clueless" tag themselves.  The
patronising and inflammatory nature of this is most likely to make people
leave the list rather than to take notice of tag rules.  I'm pretty stunned
to be honest.

Glad I wasn't the only one who felt the mail to be somewhat OTT.

I got the same message - I also got one from Dave earlier than this and did change it to OT. Then on replying to ones that were still [PIC]: I tryed to barstardise it to [OT]: [PIC

Guess that doesn't work : (

Maybe a good thing that thread has died off - it was looking like turning to a flame war (and I am partly to blame) Sorry guys and girls

but did you remove any other tags? I know my sorting order looks for the PIC
tag first, and so if there is more than one, they get sorted in the order
they get found.

Don't worry I got a couple of messages too about this thread, and for both
messages remembered after hitting the send button that I had forgot to
modify the tag.

Trevor, thank you VERY MUCH for changing the topic tag. I really appreciate
your following the lists rules and helping us retain people who don't have
time or bandwidth to read off topic posts. The topic tags allow these people
to filter out posts they don't want, but this only works if people are
responsible and change the tags to match the actual topic of the post.

I'm sorry I didn't look closely enough at the topic of your post. I was in a
mad frenzy of flaming people and I got sloppy.

Again, thanks to you for doing the right thing.

I believe you fell under the US Strategic Air Commands rule that stated:
"No good deed shall go unpunished!"

I prefer to think the ill mannered post was a prank gone astray....

I save the [OT] stuff for R&R time.
