It has not yet been adandoned. The reason you are still getting
posts labelled [OT] is because many folks *still* aren't using the
tags correctly. To correctly use the tags, there *MUST* be a colon
directly after the tag. And many folks are forgetting the colon.
Either that, or just not even bothering with the tags at all.
This is kinda important, so I'll go over it all again:
THERE MUST BE A COLON AFTER THE TOPIC TAG!
The topic tags are:
[PIC]: - for discussion of Pics and Pic related hardware (such as
[EE]: - Discussion of topics not necessarily directly related to
Pic micros, but of interest to the EE community.
[AD]: - Posts of a commercial nature, such as iems for sale, also
items wanted to buy.
[OT]: - Posts that don't fit the above topics.
The tags go at the *beginning* of the subject line, not at the end.
When replying to a tagged post, the Re: of Fw: that the email program
puts on the front of the subject line is okay - the server can deal
AND DON'T FORGET THE COLON!
