Were not talking about "a post," we're talking about a flood of posts, 
each usually with multiple subjects within.

No, these are flood waters that drown out participation in this group.  
No opportunity is given to discuss them before the next deluge pours 
in.   It's obvious that not even Roy himself is taking the time to read 
or analyze the stuff he posts here, let alone discuss his own posts!

understand what I wrote.

I am dictating nothing.  I am making reasonable request.   As I said, 
I'll have to plonk Roy, even though I hate to do it.
