After seeing repetitive posts by the same person, I automatically delete them and wonder if I missed something engaging. But somehow I cannot justify the monopoly of conversation.

I'd rather listen to a number of voices on a given subject, but when one person keeps waving a hand in my face, I tend to turn off. I wonder if anyone else feels the same way.

These are not bad at all in posting volume for a 57 day period. Even JR
is averaging fewer than 6 posts per day and everyone except the top 2
is less than 3. Compare that to the interval I described above with a
number of people at 10 or even 15 posts per day.
