OT means "Off Topic". It's a way of saying "I know what I'm posting
doesn't really fit within the charter of this list, but I'm still
posting it, because - probably - I think it still interests most people

Of course some times it just means "I don't care that it's not the topic
for this list, I just wanted to say it. Here." :)
