Does that mean this stimulating exchange is over!? ;-)
If not, could you both continue this discussion over on Meta,
Wikipedia or in a private email.

There was a 30 post per person monthly "soft" limit on foundation-l.
Is that still in place?
(if its changed, please update [[meta:foundation-l]])

Jayen, you're winning this month at 42 already ;-)

Thomas Morton is coming second with 35.

Jussi-Ville, Nemo, David, Kim, you're at 27, 27, 25 and 25 respectively.

The stats are here

(thanks Erik Zachte)

Somehow David Gerard, Milos Rancic, Kim and Tobias Oelgarte made it to
96, 95, 89 and 83 posts last month.  Last month Thomas Dalton,
Jussi-Ville Heiskanen and I posted 39, 37 and 35 times respectively,
and everyone else was under the 30 post soft limit.

Could the mods please enforce this a bit more.  I think it has been
detrimental to the list to allow so few people to dominate the
discussions here.
