[pp.int.general] This mailing list is a limited and fragile resource

I do not like the idea of only be able to post only once a day.
That would make everyone of us into write all responses that we want to
give to different people into gigantic mails.
So instead of several mails separated by theme, we will be dealing with few
very large emails all of them with several themes to address.
that would make impossible to follow themes by subject.
