The best way to limit the noise on this list is for people to exercise
some self restraint.    (01)

I try to limit my contributions to one note per day, and I try to group
my responses to multiple people in a single note.  Unfortunately, I
sometimes go over the limit, especially in the middle of a hot debate.    (02)

Recommendation:  I suggest that ontolog forum should have an automatic
cutoff that would prevent *everyone* except Peter Yim from submitting
more than one note per day.  If anyone hit the "reply button" for a
second note during the same 24-hour period, the email handler would
send the note *only* to the original sender or anybody on the explicit
cc list.  (In case of emergency, it would be possible to ask Peter to
post a second note to the whole forum.)    (03)

I believe that this solution would reduce the noise very significantly.    (04)
