Carl (and everyone else),
1) I completely agree--so, in spite of what I wrote before, I'm agreeing with you right now on my SECOND post for the day. (But I hardly ever post, so hopefully I'm still OK . . .)
2) Thank you, Gregory Machacek, for your astute and level-heading points.
3) Harold Skulsky is absolutely correct when he reminds us that "Membership in Milton-L, when all is said and done, is a privilege and not a right." Having said that, I hope that we will all be self-regulating in the ways that Louis and Gregory have suggested, and only resort to formal exclusion in extreme circumstances. I'm reminded of the Son in PR 1.221-26:
. . . first
By winning words to conquer willing hearts,
And make persuasion do the work of fear;
At least to try, and teach the erring soul,
Not wilfully misdoing, but unware
Misled; the stubborn only to subdue.

Most grateful for the graciousness and common sense, wisdom and care shown in this discussion.
Re: one post per day: A limit of one or two posts per day might be urged as a "guideline," but in many instances, the current discussion is one, to set such a limit as a "rule" might --with some frequency-- cramp things up when they need not be. -Carl

I too trust Kevin and Louis to make the right decision, not least because they are aware (as we are not) of off-list correspondence that might have crossed lines that on-list comments did not. There is a quesiton of legal liability here.
