Well, yes and no. There is no restriction on the number of posts anyone
can make to the list. However, I have noticed over the past couple of
months a significant increase of personal messages that have been sent
to the list instead of being sent privately. " Thank you"s and " you
take great pictures" and "will you send me some of that" and "I agree
whole heartedly" similar types of messages should be sent privately to

There are certainly expecption to the above, but the criteria should be,
"is my message something that is informative to everyone, or a question
that everyone will be interested in?" I don't want to drive any
relevent questions or comments off the list, and you should certainly
err on the side of sending it to the list, but messages that are only of
interest to the sender and the recipient should be sent privately. I
realize that we develop relationships on the list and that we mostly
have a "big family" feeling to most of what goes on, and that is good.
Also, try to refrain form posting or responding to posts that have
little to do with irises. If an issue comes up that bothers you,
*write*to*me*. The list doesn't need to know that, for instance, the way
someone signs their messages drives you up the nearest wall.
No, I am not picking on anyone in particular (at least right now <grin>)
I am declaring an official end to the Shouting thread. If you have more
to say, either let it go, or send it to ME.
