Anything that is not on topic is considered off topic, including messages intended for a particular person, replies to other off topic messages or spams, and comments about the value of somebody else's response / option / whatever. The list gives you privileged access to many people around the world. Please be considerate, and don't load their email boxes with unnecessary drivel.
People are encouraged to post thank you messages to the people concerned rather than to the mailing list as they are not of general interest.
Similarly, expressions of interest in offers of paid work should be sent to the person offering the work rather than to the mailing list.
