Well, Shemp said he would leave if people said he was posting too much
-- or something like that. No one is asking anyone to leave -- but as
you say, if they cannot reform a bit, with feedback, then something
measures may be appropriate. Like the "time out".

Amd Baqrry seems to be responding weel to feedback. Much of it his own

Lets see over a day or two if feedback helps induce Judy and Sparaig
to reduce excessive posts (above 10%) amd improve tone if appropriate.

Six posters / readers have stood up and said they dislike the
excessive posting and/or tone of massive posters. I suspect four or
(many) more will do so soon.

I don't thinks so. But its easy to implement. If 10 people support the
"time-out" system, I think the moderators would be in accord with,
modestly bound to in a way, implementing a ban of excessive posters.
And various people monitor the %'s -- its fast and easy to do. So, Its
pretty automatic.
