Post frequency limits for current events threads

This is inspired by a certain thread.

I think threads relating current events, politics, and foreign relations to gymnastics should be welcome here. But they can invite off topic discussion. I recommend proactively throttling post frequency on these types of threads to maintain our high standard of informative and snarky discussion.

Can you specify which thread this is in regard to? We can turn on limitations if we know which thread.

Posts are now limited to one post every 30 minutes for one week.
We can revisit as needed.

I don’t understand the only one post per 30 minute rule. Everything is live and “developing” these days with social media platforms. I know this is not a social media platform however I think that limiting posting is a step in the wrong direction and limits lively and engaging discussion.

I basically agree with Kathy. I also thought given the nature of the discussion it was pretty informative and devoid of snark. I did not see any standard being threatened or eroded. But it is up to the mods.

Likewise.

I personally turned off notifications of this thread cause it was getting a bit on my head, but i agree that should be each person’s responsibility rather than a feature, unless the discussion is nasty or anybody is saying something bad about chellsie or larisa

I’m confused. Is it 30 minutes per poster or 30 minutes for everyone?

The reddest of red lines!

We might as well codify this as the threshold for post rate limiting.

Didn’t realize that people were so passionate about the discussion.

Therefore I have removed the post limitations.

Thank you for the feedback.

I mean if it comes to that we can vote, but so far so good no?
