Well, I agre with that, but I also disagree with you in the sense that you say that posters can tell another poster here that they can not respond to them unless they direct a stement to them in particular. The way I feel is that if it is unreasonable for one to invoke that no one replys to them, then I feel it is just as unreasonable for a poster to tell just one poster to not reply to them.
Let us consider the following example:
Jeanie: I have been reading this board and you're all psycho-babble hypocrites. And don't anyone respond to me.
Now the above case, if your policy was followed, would that mean that anyone that replied to Jeanie, would be in violation of your rule?
Now let us consider another case:
Lou: There is a new drug out that will stop depression permanatly and free you from any addiction just by taking one pill, and I am invoking that the following be not allowed to ask me anything:
lostboy in Boston
Would this type of post be permitted her?
