If off-topic is restricted to certain content, it, ex post facto, becomes on-topic. If that were the case, the section would require a different name.

    1. I disagree. Just because there's a box, doesn't mean the box is small.
    2. You're still conflating the two ideas, contrary to what Arunbear is suggesting.

      I reckon we are the only monastery ever to have a dungeon stuffed with 16,000 zombies.

      Just because there's a box, doesn't mean the box is small.

      Big? Small? Who cares! A box is a box is a box, meaning it has borders. The borders then define the on-topic "off-topic" contents. Which would be better suited with a name to reflect the intended contents.
