Yes, what you are discussing is a part of a great many admins jobs but they are not part of an admin's role. The distinction is rather critical in determining what is considered on topic for SF. I believe it would be fair to say that most of us wear more than one hat at work.
Lines have to be drawn and if we were to allow the line to drift about too far, where would it end? Discussing what we eat for lunch? What mode of transport we use to get to work, or even while we are at work? All are part of our daily lives as admins, yet none are part of our admin roles. On a more practical level, many of us are also programmers but programming questions are still off topic.
In the early days of SF there were some absolutely absurd topics discussed and even voted to ridiculous heights. It's taken a long time to clean most of them out as the site's focus evolved and became somewhat more rigid, with a more professional atmosphere to boot. SF is a better site for it.
