Although it's not enforceable as an official limit, I tend to think it's
a good idea to limit one's mailing list postings to no more than the
number of significant contributions to a Wikimedia project, where a
"contribution" is something like writing one good paragraph of a
Wikipedia article, uploading an image to Commons, etc. Just posted five
messages to foundation-l? Time to find five useful non-meta things to do
to make up for it!
