Given that we moved the job posting to its own list (because it annoyed some
people? After all "work is the curse of the drinking classes" so it's arguably
anti-topic), wouldn't it be logical to set up another list for this?

So that everyone who only really wants to know about beer, buffy and pie
can have their trivia-stream undiluted with real content?

On the subject of beer, where is the orthodox social on the upcoming Thursday
1st October? I don't think that the heretics have announced anything on the
8th yet, so we can steal their thunder. :-)
