Wow, I find it fascinating when people want such a wonderful thing named 34S to "go off-list", so they can "read about 15C" or whatever ... ?!? Does 34S prevent anyone from writing anything about other HP calculators, emulators, other equipment, etc? Certainly not!
In my opinion at least, 34S is such a big achievement that has emerged in recent years, that it fully deserves to be part of this forum. Does it dominate the forum at the moment? Yes - but various themes have dominated it in the past, for a few weeks or even months, this is normal when something like that appears. Would the number of posts increase if 34S goes off-list? No - the forum will just return to as it was before, with a few posts per day, 75% of them being "look-what-I-found-on-ebay".
I slowly started to loose interest in following this forum at around 2007-2008, to the point that I didn't look at it for weeks. But, after I read about 34S, I returned its URL to my bookmarks :-)
So, yes, be my guest - remove 34S, this is what we need now ;-)
Just my 2 cents ...
