He actually suspended you or asked you to slow down on the posting? Man, even I didn't get suspended. I think I came real close at one time though! Did he send you any warning or anything?? I'm sorry Susan but that's funny as hell.
still, I can't imagine him banning the Grill Queen without some dialogue ...Just a gentle reminder to members...I'm beginning to notice more off-topic conversation creeping back into message threads, plus lots of "me, too", "looks good" replies that take up space without adding any value, plus some personal back-and-forth messages between members that are better taken off-line.
Remember, the goal here is to ask and answer questions, not to chat.
Thanks for your help,

I got a very polite email asking me to post less frequently. His concern, as he stated, was that it can seem to other members that someone (me, I guess) is 'dominating the conversation'. Okay, I can (kind of) get that. What I didn't quite get was that he looked at the number of posts I'd made in the last month, multiplied that rate out to come up with a total for the next year and then seemed to have an issue with that because that total would be more than anyone else's; more than his since the time he started the board, and other long-time members.
I could not care less what my total is. I found the extrapolation forward strange; kind of like guilty till proven innocent. In another paragraph he notes that he reviewed my posts but felt conflicted in asking me to post less because nearly all my posts "[add] value to the threads you're replying to."
Dunno. It made me feel kind of strange. I have not posted since (and I've had some great cooks in the past few days!!). Now I'm conflicted.
Again, he was very polite, and I'm thankful for that.
WOW, I'm stunned he had the nerve to ask you to cut back. I love your posts, they're probably the most informative. I especially like your posts on the business side of things.

I think next time I make a batch, tho, I might sneak one away to smoke. (Out back, behind the woodshed.)

Please tell Susan to check her e-mail. Apparently she's quite busy and has not read my message to her.
Thanks for your concern,
