Subject: New limits on Queries?
Date: Wed, 8 Mar 2000 15:20:18 EST
Readers: The following is a nastygram "Jess"() (list
owner?)sent to me for having annoyed his clicking finger and other
sinsibilities,by my method of genealogical posting.
It is followed with my comments to it, so scroll on.
Please stop making the same "Johnson" query, over and over, on the
Tn-Coffee (and other lists). It doesn't do much good to post it every
week, it only makes people mad. I am getting complaints every day. Let
it ride, for a few weeks.
The way I read part of this is:
Youre getting complaints everyday about me posting every 2-3 weeks? Cant be!
" There are always "Whiners"about having to click off "subjects" Why dont
they start their own site that has only "subjects"of their interest. Dont
they know that everything isnt going to interest them or you?
I place queries every 2-3 weeks to the various counties and states,where my
decendants lived from 1790-1900, I have received replies from new people each
time I send these out.( & you receive complaints every day)
Unless there are rules that restrict me from sending these same queries out
every week,2 weeks or 3weeks, and that restrict the number of counties I am
allowed to search ,as you attempt to do in your email to me,I will continue
to search in the manner in shich I am accustomed.
If there are rules set up by the chief adm.of rootsweb and Im not following
them,then by all means I'll conform.Let me know where they are listed.
"Cant we all just get along?"
