If I didn't find discussions on this SIG of some interest I would

1) have given up reading it a long time ago
2) not bothered sending my "complaint" on the list.

While I understand the need to go beyond talking strictly about
Python, given the historical impetus of CP4E, I found that seemingly
neverending discussions "questioning" the relevance of using computers
in (name your topic or student age group of preference) were
"stretching" the limits of what should be acceptable topics of
discussion on this list.
