IMHO that doesn't justify.

The advice to move the discussion to a windows-specific group is not
just about reducing off-topic discussion[1], but because there isn't
that much Windows (Seven) users in this newsgroup. Most comp.lang.python
users either uses linux, unix, macs, or older version of windows, and
are not familiar with the specifics of Windows 7.

It would be nice though, if you reposted the solution you found from
another forum here to benefit other python Windows 7 users.

[1] pretty much anything computer-related is not entirely off-topic in
c.l.py because of the wide range of situations people uses python in
(I've seen general algorithmic questions, text-editor wars, problems
with 3rd party module, jython/ironpython internals, etc discussed in
here; many of those gets quite welcomed even though technically off-topic)
