Limiting Responses #general


W. Ellen Fleischmann & Reid A. Kneeland
 

Dear Jenners,

I just spent 2 hours deleting over 600 messages >from JewishGen. This was
one week's worth of mail.

While managing my mailbox is certainly my own concern, I thought that I
might make one small suggestion: when replying to someone's request for
information, if the request is more than a day old, please check to see if
anyone else has already responded.

I appreciate the generous spirit of all of Geners, and in no way do I
suggest that it be quelled. Rather, I would respectfully request that
unless you have something counter to or significantly different >from what's
already been posted, please just defer to the Genner-on-the-Spot.

I hope that this will help all of us find those important postings which
connect us to family then and now.

Thanks for reading this.

Please, no flames. And please, let's not discuss this suggestion endlessly!

B'shalom,

Ellen Fleischmann
