That doesn't exactly qualify as "discussing Rockbox support" either, I think,
and yet there are people on this list who are appreciative of the discussion

I've never quite understood why this list seems to be so aggressively against
discussions on related topics of interest to Rockbox users, even if they're
not directly "Rockbox questions or answers" - I think the whole place could
be so much more friendly if people weren't jumped on for voluntarily
providing information likely to be of benefit to a significant proportion of
the list subscribers.
