I would like to request that you reduce your volume of emails on  
public-html, for example, since 28th September, you posted 11 out of  
15 emails to the "The only name for the xml serialisation of html5".  
There is, in my opinion, very little reason to ever be posting more  
than 50% of the quantity of emails, even if you are replying to each  
and every reply individually. A large number of your replies are to  
the same posts again and again: can you not just spend more time  
writing these emails and send your entire reply to an email at once?  
I know there are plenty of many members of the WG, myself included,  
who often spend several days (or, at the very least, hours) writing  
emails, normally saving them as a draft before sending them.

We, as a WG as a whole, are averaging between 19 and 20 emails per  
day: posting 5 in the same thread in one day as you did increases the  
email by 25%! There are plenty of people who are under a lot of  
strain trying to keep up with the volume of email as is, so I would  
advice you to try and not increase the volume of email without good  

All the best,

Geoffrey Sneddon.
