Actually, we have stated what is on-topic. I quote from the list guidelines, which are sent to each subscriber when they sign up, and are posted to the list irregularly:

I apologize for any misunderstanding. We certainly haven't meant to imply that discussion of OJ2 was unwelcome on DSSSList. That discussion is certainly welcome here.

I did say that crossposting is disruptive, and I meant it. Crossposting means that part of a discussion will be archived in one place, part in another, some in both. It means that some contributions to the discussion may be visible to some readers but not others, and that there will be two fragmentary archives of the discussion and no complete archive. It means that some readers will get multiple copies of some posts and that other readers will get only part of the conversation. I suggest that the group select a forum for this discussion, and post a note on other related lists saying, essentially, "we are talking about this cool topic over there. Come join us if you are interested."

>It means less publicity for OJ2, but it is their list.

We firmly support development of, and publicity for OJ2. Again, that discussion is welcome on DSSSList.

I'm sorry that you think asking that people use mailing lists in ways that make for orderly discussion and useable archives is discouraging discussion of any topic.
