In a semi-answer to your "at what point does X become off topic" - I usually try to think "what would the average Rabbit be interested in" or stuff like that. The rule of thumb you pointed out "when the crafts are not directly related to Looney Labs" works well.
For example - the discussion of "should we have a forum or an FTP site?" is perfect for the Rabbit list. That concerns all Rabbits - and we want all the input and ideas and opinions of the Rabbit community in the discussion. However, when the discussion turns to the geeky-bits of how to set up those things, then it may be appropriate to move that to the Geeks list.
Usually we're really good about moving things off one list and putting it on another as needed. Especially when we listen to each other as people say "hey, this isn't really interesting to me any more - can this topic be moved?" Rules of thumb, all - and usually well used by this community.

Though I'm still kind of wondering at what point my craft activities become off topic (I'm assuming for now that it's when the crafts are not directly related to looney promotions... such as trying to find some non-cosmic coaster game to put on the front of a bag...)
But perhaps that kind of thing will give rise to the red saturns. (Actually Contagious dreams would be a better place, but if you can no longer find a group that fits.... make your own.) [

Please, not another forum. Let's leave all discussion on the rabbit list.
Logging in to download files is fine, but please don't give me another
place I have to go to, and, in essence, check my email. That's what
my Inbox is for and it works great, thanks.
