I think it's pretty easy to see that without numbers and statistics.

Question: lately there are a few people who post about thirty or forty posts
(usually on the same two or three threads) a day, while others post every few
days, or not at all.

I too find it amusing, but it has caused me to get a separate mailbox which I
must delete twice a day, after having ascertained that most of those posts
are personal quipping.

On that note: Time is of the essence for busy people, so setting up some kind
of data base is out of the question for most of us.

Has the list ever a suggested "courtesy" posting limit? 5 per day? 10? 12?
