EE is not well defined even it means [Everything Engineering]. I saw
the antivirus thread from James, so IT is considered as [EE], I
agree with this but people may not agree. And quite some of the [EE] or
even [PIC] issues will be considered by James as religious.

<Xiaofan' rant and solution to [OT]>
Totally agree. "unknowable" and "knowable" are really too difficult and
too subjective. In my opinion, all political and religious and some other
stuffs should be banned. Engineering, IT, science and any technical related
issues should be allowed even if they are considered as unknowable.

Or James can separate OT into two parts (political and non-political).
But I think various similar suggestions have been put up and ignored.
So I will suggest people who do not like [OT] to unsubscribe [OT] and
then use Gmane to read the [OT] part of PIClist. may
be another option.

I use Gmail (Windows/Linux) and OE(Windows)/Thundeebird(Linux) coupled
with Gmane to read [OT]. That is a better option. In fact I do not
subscribe [OT] from this address. I may want to unsubscribe PIClist
totally from this address later because of the difficulty not to
top-post from Outlook 2K (manually adding '>' for this post).
