Re: Re: Voting on messages: a way to resolve the mailing list problems
I doubt it. I'd like to see evidence that posting patterns can
efficiently estimate the interest of a message (besides spam, of
course). I wonder what you have in mind with "playing ping-pong". A long
exchange between two people can be interesting, or not. The proposal
already suggests a [potentially] good way to estimate the interest, I
don't see why we'd need such heuristics too.
Just to add to the brainstorm, an incremental counter measuring how many emails
one person sent to the list in a 24-h window could be very useful to directly
ignore people when they start to play ping-pong.
