    The fact is that this group is devoted to the C++ *LANGUAGE*, not to
    helping with every little platform- and compiler-specific question that
    anyone has. They're just as on-topic here as perl, html, or any other
    topic *not* related to C++.

    Directing someone to a newsgroup hierarchy which *is* related to their
    question is a service to them and to this group in general, since a)
    they're more likely to get an informed response and b) it helps to
    lessen the off-topic traffic in this group. Considering that there are
    still some people paying by the minue, or the KB, for their internet
    traffic, major off-topic discussions can cause problems beyond the sheer
    annoyance factor.

    Perhaps you need to take your own advice. *shrug*
