Ok, that's much clearer. However, as Dinah has made clear, there are emotional times that really do not lend themselves to accomodating the concept of limit. When someone is triggered, they don't have a rational head. How about you set aside one board (e.g. Social) where that rule is not enforced?

Thank you for acknowledging that effect.

But Bob, he did reply. There was a dialogue, not a monologue. His replies were narrowing down, as was my questioning. He just never got to giving a single best supporting site, from his initial claim of widespread information, and intermediate claims of specialized information at certain sites. He was making some remarkable claims about a whole class of medication.
