Quote: Addendum to Binoviewer Forum Rules 3-30-06
Folks, we thought this situation was taken care of by the various general rules regarding courtesy and civility but things are getting out of hand. An issue which used to crop up in Binoviewers a long time ago but which had settled down is creeping up on us again.
The noise level is getting way too high; folks trying to read the threads are being subjected to endless repetitive comments. Since the majority of repetitive posts has been in support of one or two vendors it's become impossible to moderate the Forum evenly without making it appear that these vendors are being targeted. To remedy this, I'm invoking the "Two Comment Rule".
In Binoviewers, an individual may post the same information or opinion a maximum of twice per day - and only once in a given thread. Posts exceeding this limit will be deleted without comment and without notification.
This way all viewpoints can be expressed but none will be over-represented. This is probably the only online Forum in which supporters of all binoviewer and binoviewer accessory vendors are accorded equal courtesy - and there are reasons why other boards have given up the effort so to do - but here it's gonna stay that way. I've kept this Binoviewers forum alive in spite of pressure from many directions to eliminate it. The more difficult the users make this job the more likely it becomes that I'll cave in and let it disappear.
