Dear ASA list,
The large number of posts today has reminded me of a couple of list
rules that I had planned to include when I posted the rules before.
Here they are:
No more than four posts a day will be allowed from any single list
member. Members are encouraged to create substantive responses to
related post in a given thread (perhaps cutting and pasting relevant
sections from the posts to which they are responding). This policy 1)
prevents only a few individuals from dominating the list; 2) helps
restrain members who feel the need to respond to every post; 3)
requires members to be more selective in what they respond to; and 4)
encourages more substantive posts.
Somewhat related to this rule is this additional rule:
Quote only parts of the message that are relevant to your response.
Messages that unnecessarily include large portions of a previous
message will not be posted or will be edited by the moderator.
Archives of the ASA list are immediately available at
http://www.calvin.edu/archive/asa/ if you need to see the history of
a given thread. These are arranged by date and time posted, author,
As before, please send comments directly to me at
email@example.com rather than to the list.
