Off the topic of what, exactly?

http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/community/mailing-lists/

"Ruby-Talk
  This is the most popular mailing-list and deals with general topics about 
Ruby. Ruby-Talk is mirrored by the comp.lang.ruby newsgroup and Ruby-
Forum.com."

http://rubyhacker.com/clrFAQ.html

"Examples of relevant postings include, but are not limited
        to, the following subjects:

        - Bug reports
        - Announcements of software written with Ruby
        - Examples of Ruby code
        - Suggestions for Ruby developers
        - Requests for help from new Ruby programmers"

When people offer you a suggestion, Ilias, that's not offtopic. It's exactly 
the opposite of offtopic -- "Suggestions for Ruby developers" is in the 
official comp.lang.ruby charter as a relevant topic.
