Years ago I would get so much email that I started some forums. The forums got so big and sorta became a community of its own, so I split them off to their own domain. The permaculture forums have since become larger than all other permaculture web sites combined. If you post something there and you specifically want my feedback and 48 hours have passed without anything from me, post to the "tinkering" forum with the subject line of "invoking the 48 hour rule" - and put a link to thread in the post.

Looking at your link it appears to have been written many years ago I would suggest it be removed . It creates ( is creating ? ) potential pressure on Paul . Permies is now so big I think this rule is unrealistic . There are lots of knowlegable folks in this community to answer problems . Thats the point . All it does is potentially put pressure on Paul and raise unrealistic expectations for posters like the OP above.

Paul himself is not some fount of perfect knowledge, there are other people on here who are specialists in different area and are as well, if not better, able to answer questions than Paul. I'm in no way bashing Paul here - but we have experts in mycorhizal fungi for example who really know their stuff. There is no need to get Paul's input on a thread that has been adequately answered.
For threads that are inadequately answered a shout out could draw in more thoughts. Paul's personal thoughts are not necessarily promised.
