That's simply not true. The mailing lists mostly have clear topic areas. 
This one is for learning the basic python language and standard library.

The fact that we allow threads to go way off-topic is an indication of 
the tolerance of the Python community, but there is still very 
definitely a theme and we have called a halt to off-topic posts in the 
past and doubtless will do so again. But so long as it has at least some 
link to the theme we generally let 'em through.

But a debate on the mating habits of the lesser spotted South American 
warbler is probably gonna get stopped pretty soon. Unless of course
it involves them getting eaten by pythons... :-)
