I would think that discussions on Self related topics would be very
welcome. I don't know if there are very many active members here, vs
people just keeping up to date with the Self world in read only mode.
I swap between the two modes often. I've enjoyed your revival of
discussions on Self.

With regards to meta discussion on post content it can be a very
heated area. I try to avoid anything involving gender, politics or
religion in a forum not devoted to those subjects. One other project I
lurk in has a "-chat' list and irc channel for offtopic discussion
where it's understood that things can get way off topic. it does
depend on the project and people involved though.
