You know I respect your opinion, BUT. AGH's advice depends on its premise. Most of the boards I browse don't get 50, or even 25 posts a day, which makes them easy to peruse quickly absent such announcement postings.
Also even if you think I and others who feel the same are wrong in how we view it, is there anything wrong with the suggestion that teafor2, habitual obit posters, etc., just keep adding to one thread? To me it seems like a way for a community to attempt to satisfy all its users. Or do you feel that teafor2 or an obit poster having to post in only one thread (despite the fact that searches turn them up easily), somehow devalues their announcements/links?
And what would you say if AGH channeled his stream of consciousness (I know sorry for the thought), into 25 or 50 different posts a day in the same board albeit all genealogical?
