People are being deliberately indirect. Not all MN threads show up in search engine results.

It stands for Off the beaten track it's for threads you don't know where else to post

Off the beaten track is the only part of MN Talk that doesn't show up in Google searches (and/or Advanced Search). It's recommended as a less overlooked place for a sensitive conversation. Low traffic though. Some long-running quiches live there. I think threads self-destruct after thirty days.
