> ... my statement above was supposed to lighten the mood, but I now see it could be viewed as a taunt to the people who are for the 3 post rule. So I truly apologize for that. You all know me. I tend to say stupid things when trying to be funny. I don't ever intentionally insult someone, so it doesn't always occur to me that my words could be taken wrong.
The issue regarding the limiting of consecutive posting was contentious and drew heated debate. I believe that it was after much deliberation and with much reluctance that Dr. Bob decided to implement a 3 consecutive post limit. For the most part, repetitive consecutive posting has not been a problem, and the need for a limit is not normally apparant. However, I think certain historic posting behaviors demonstrated a need for a change in posting policy. It is not important who was responsible for these behaviors. Once the need for change was demonstrated, it no longer mattered.
