I am confused.  Do you like to see any post made by others about a 
topic?  Do you think that the moderator should, after several posts, 
tell the rest to hold their comments?

Do you wish to see a time limit on a topic?  Do you not wish to see a 
time limit?

Do you wish to control what is posted?  Do you not wish to control what 
is posted?
