in reply to Non-Perl Topic OK?
in thread Spooky math problem

Not everything on this site is strictly perl. For example, look at the current poll. At other times, conversations take twists and end up being about everything but programming. I think it would be pretty dull if we never brought up other topics.

On the other hand, too much off-topic discussion will obscure the main subject of the site. I, at least, would find it nice if posts were labeled in some way, either with an 'ot' disclaimer in the title, or with a section as discussed.
