I don't think there is a perfect solution here. Whatever the decision, either side may feel that their rights have been restricted. The multiple poster may feel constrained or those who are subjected to the endless posts may feel violated.
I don't want any poster here to feel that they can't express themselves (especially if they have OCD or some other disorder that provokes the need to post again and again). On the otherhand, the board should not be able to be hijacked and monopolized by one individual out of fairness to all of the others.
The only fair solution I see here is a compromise that would allow multiple but not endless postings. It's not perfect but I think it's the best that can be done under the circumstances.
Scott, you are probably going to ask what I think that number should be. I'm open to suggestion here but I would personally like to see no more than 5 posts that try to elicit the same response.
