Could someone make the list do the [cctalk] thing in the subject line?

I think so.

For example,
"Re: Giving away collection of computers"
has turned into discussion and meetings of hams.  That would defintitely 
not belong on CCTECH, but seems to be a reasonable tangent for CCTALK.

Besides guns, cars, etc., CCTALK has quite a few discussions that are not 
really ON-topic, but do seem to involve a fair number of overlaps in 
interests between the folk here.

While we don't want to be a support forum for current hardware, there 
would seem to be a lot of subjects for which it would be difficult to be 
sure about where the line falls as to being on-topic.  The presence of 
CCTALK reduces the need for rigidity in that enforcement.  But, there are 
other folk who would prefer a very rigid enforcement.

Could we just agree to let Jay make the decisions on such trivia?
