Actually, I thought I discouraged it!

Vice? Isn't that Ward's department? He has that signature about alcohol
and tobacco.

Seriously, I haven't been keeping track of off-topicness, but it seemed
about the same as before (maybe it's gone up a little recently, but not
solidly since I started). I think you're exaggerating.

Perhaps it would be better if I started approving messages. Then I could
still read the silly things everyone has to say but they wouldn't be
inflicted on others.
