All -- This is a reminder that time-nuts is a technical mailing list.

Please be careful with your replies. If you read, compose and hit send within 30 seconds, it's likely the post will sound like it belongs on social media instead of time-nuts.

Our list works best when postings are well thought out, technical and educational. With 1800 members it doesn't scale well to use the list for off-the-cuff comments or speculation or tangents upon tangents.

When a posting arrives that's off-topic or is missing substantial technical content I usually send a private email to explain why it might not be suitable. Be we've had so many recently that I don't have time to engage with each member personally. So if your post goes missing or if you get an automated rejection notice from the server don't take it personally; we're just trying raise the bar after a gradual drift in quality. As John says, time nuts is a low volume, high SNR list.
