Re: SUO: Re: Meta*Question About Example In KR Book
The guidelines I follow are the same ones that I proposed when
the question about limiting the number of email postings was
discussed a couple of months ago (sometime in August, I think):
1. Limit the number of new topics that any single subscriber
may initiate to a small number per day -- no more than 2 or 3.
2. But allow a larger number of replies to ongoing discussions --
especially permit follow-up responses to direct questions
and ongoing debates.
I find it very difficult to navigate the SUO archive, so I wasn't
able to retrieve the exact thread. But the discussion about
limiting the number of postings seemed to get resolved or put
aside, and no further discussion on this topic was pursued.
But that is the principle I follow: don't clutter the list with
too many new topics, but respond when somebody addresses you.
