Whether you would say that using Windows 7 itself makes the topic improper for discussion, I of course don’t know
It is.   The group rules have stated, in bold, italic, and underlined text for quite a while now:

Unsupported versions of any software may only be discussed on the Chat Subgroup, not the main NVDA Group. 

Windows:  Only Windows 8.1 and currently supported versions of Windows 10.  Members should refer to the Windows Lifecycle Fact Sheet to determine which versions of Windows are currently supported.  Information about the dates on which specific versions of Windows 10 reached or will reach their end of service dates is listed there as well and will be updated as new versions are released. 

Note that it is acceptable to direct a user to the NVAccess or Microsoft sites where older versions can be downloaded, however, this is different than supporting a specific version of software or operating system.

NVDA:  NVDA has, at any given time, a single version under active support.  If a question arises about how to update to that version, and you’re on an earlier version, that will be permitted as transition problems can occasionally occur.

Windows 7 is out of support.  It no longer remains a long-term solid ecosystem under which to run anything in contact with cyberspace, and I don't know of anyone here who isn't doing email, web browsing, etc.  It's also virtually certain that sooner or later NVDA is no longer going to be compatible with Windows 7.

We have a venue where members who wish to have discussions regarding anything within the realm of civil discourse (and that includes Windows 7, or other out of support software) may do so with others who are potentially interested in engaging in same:  The Chat Subgroup.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
