Look, the point is that it varies.  There are good reasons to limit
postings and good reasons not to limit postings.  Generally, I find that
for support type mailing lists, it's preferable to not limit postings.
This allows people to post a single question to the list (with a request
to include their direct address in responses) without having to subscribe
to the list itself and be subject to its regular traffic.

I really don't see a need for the PLUG list to limit the subscriptions at
this time.  We've had only very occaisional problems of this nature, and
this doesn't warrant limiting postings.
