I figured that #gnewsense is for discussing about gNS in general and
also for support on it... 

So, I can not understand what they mean with 'offtopic chat' in

Also I think that if someone in #gnewsense need to chat
'offtopic' they could open a private chat/room or join also to other
more in-topic for their off-topics channels...

In other words, if I love gNS and also want to chat about vegan
recipes then I could join both #gnewsense and #vegan-recipes...

Splitting people over different channels should not result in a better

More, splitting the channel to keep #gnewsense strictly for support
should need this one to be continuously and "strongly" moderated to stay
without offtopic chat (otherwise splitting will have no sense). 

It seems better to me just avoid abuses (i.e. too much offtopic chat,
trolls etc.) in #gnewsense (maybe useful if there will be more
"affordable" and "seriuos" OPs in the channel).

Better do not split :-)
