I find this very hindering for main news articles on this site. Some conversations between members can get intense and lengthly and thanks to the limit some folks don't get a chance to respond to one another. Is there anything that the staff at GI.com that manage the site can change this or are we just going to have to deal with it?
Ah, I wasn't even aware such a limitation had been put in place, shows how active I've been lately. If I was to take an educated guess though, I'd say that limitation was put in place as a countermeasure against the spammers you see on the forums from time to time to make sure that a single spammer cannot completely take over our forum area before one of the mods gets a chance to clean their mess up, while at the same time giving regular posters enough posting power to be active on the site. If that is indeed the case, then it's a rather delicate balance.
