I am quite guilty occasionaly of using the list on things I should google
for. But those things are definitely on-topic. Sometimes it's because I'm
lazy. Sometimes it's because I get way too many responses from google to
sift through. Other times it's because I'm trying to start up an on-topic
conversation on the list in order to steer it away from an offtopic one
currently in progress. Hint.
