[Taxacom] Put a limit on number of submissions

Following a brief [off-list] exchange with Pierre Deleporte, and speaking
(writing) as a self-acknowledged over-contributor to this list who
understands both the value of free, open, and detailed intellectual exchange
*AND* the encumberance of wading through a million Taxacom posts in one's
inbox (without accidentally deleting an important message), I have decided
to attempt a self-imposed limit of 3 posts per day (for exactly the reasons
Pierre mentioned in his recent [on-list] post).

In order to both remind myself, and inspire (shame?) others, I will be
adding a new standard line beneath my traditional signature.

First Post Today

P.S. I highly suspect that, after the next lull in conversation and
contributions by me, I will probably forget my pledge and neglect to include
the additional line under the signature.  If anyone who notices this feels
so inclined as to send me an [off-list!] reminder of my pledge, I would be
most grateful.
