As a long time member, I agree that the two post limit is kind of silly these days.  Why not try it for awhile and if people get too wordy, then limit it again.  There really seem to be very few posts these days and I miss them.

But, conversely it limits the possible contributions from the interesting, insightful and articulate, so perhaps it should be broomed, at least temporarily, as an experiment.  If things get out of hand, the two-post limit can be re-imposed.  Maybe raise the limit to three for a start?
