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 stats. 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 know if this is possible, but if there is an > automatic feature on chat rooms that just witholds posts from any person who has been > overposting 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.
