No,  the air-l list never was like that.  Steve's software wasn't set  
for that either.  i was always pretty much adamantly against doing  
something like this :)    I still am, but now I don't make the  
arguments in regards to list management.   I can see both sides of  
having limited numbers of posts, but I'd rather have those people who  
our enthusiastic be able to convey that, and learn when... enthusiasm  
goes a bit too far through gentle prodding, or more serious measures  
if it goes beyond enthusiasm.

Having been a listmom for quire some time,  I think that in regards  
to list behavior, people should get appropriate hints, and when hints  
fail, they should be warned by list management and when warnings are  
insufficient, they should have a forced break, of 2 weeks where they  
can't post, and then if they continue after a 2 weeks break, then  
they should be removed.  That would be what i would currently argue for.
