This list is not so busy that 5 shots in a day should be prohibited. Much
above that would probably result in diminishing returns for whomever is
sending the requests. I don't think, though, that I would want to see it as
part of the "listiquette", or made a rule. As long as the name of the
person being researched is in the subject line (last name in caps) with
maybe a date or location, I feel the rest of the format should be up to the
poster. Too many rules make Jack, and most lists, DULL. This is an
avocation for most of us, hobbies are supposed to be fun... lets have fun.
