Minority, isn't that pretty much everyone transhuman? ; - )
Of those who benefit, a certain number of them will be those who travel or
are often too busy to write. Those who have the luxury of time, and post
often will have to limit, others will have more than they use.

in general, limiting the list by numbers of words alone, if I am reading it
Question: When I return from a business trip or an extended work schedule,
I have a lot of tokens stacked up? Or do they expire....
