Subject [PROPOSAL] TL;DR editors
Date Tue, 09 Apr 2013 13:15:54 GMT
The amount of email on this list has grown beyond ridiculousness. I propose a new required
process on this list whereby anyone who starts a new thread is required to diligently monitor
it and post a summary at the end.  The person would assume an editor role for that thread.

[SUMMARY] Incubator structure (was Re: Vote on personal matters: majority vote vs consensus)

The joyous occasion whereby all participants hold that their feelings have been honestly considered
and a consensus has been arrived upon.  Here is the gist of the common view:

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt
ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco
laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in
voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat
non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum.

This way, those of us who don't have the time to read threads whose post counts grow passed
one hundred aren't on the hook to read all the drivel in order to keep up.  The summary must
be kept at most a five sentence paragraph; please, no Henry James like prose.

It also has the added effect of keeping people who aren't committed to seeing an issue through
from starting a thread to begin with.
