Good topic to bring up – thanks, Darrell!


Well, that’s one proposal.


My proposal is that we all get back to honoring the idea of limiting our posts to three per day.  Given the fact that there was a day in July when I myself didn’t honor that, I realize I’m at risk of someone bringing an analogy about the pots & kettles to my attention <g>.


However, the “try to limit your posts to three a day” has, for the most part, worked for years & years & years, and my hope is that it will work again because I’m attached to this name!


I could be wrong, but I don’t think most folks mind when individuals occasionally go over three posts a day when actually engaged in an active discussion, particularly about local issues.  I also think folks are more tolerant when infrequent posters engage in actual discussions go over three posts in a day, whether about local issues or not.


BTW, something I really miss are the discussions about local issues.  Over time, they have become fewer and further between here, it seems to me.  I know for me personally, I don’t bring up many local issues anymore since I no longer subscribe to a local newspaper, so I’d appreciate learning about local issues I might otherwise be unaware of from discussion here.


I think keeping to three posts a day should be something relatively simple to do, too.  Since Darrell brought up Tom’s posts, I took a look and Tom could pretty easily just combine things into one post.  For instance, the three Farmer’s Market posts today could have been combined into one, and the three mp3 posts could have been combined into one, yes?


So, that’s my vote:  let’s get back to trying to keep our posts to three per day.

Subject: [Vision2020] Proposal: Change Listserv Name


I opened up my email this morning at 9am to 8 emails from Tom Hansen.  


And the day is just getting started.  


This made me curious.  How much does Tom post?  So I looked at yesterday: 7 emails.  Thursday: 8 emails.  I stopped there.


In light of this, I propose a name change.  Instead of "Moscow Vision 2020" I propose "Hansen's Moscow 24/7."


All in favor?
