Yes, I was once of the opinion that there should not be a minimum number of posts per day, but a minimum number of words - say 100 - per post to prevent posts that really contributed nothing further to the discussion.

I couldn't see this working in practice, but good threads can go for many pages without an interesting contribution and then they get hidden again.

The trouble with your suggestion ist that despite the fact we type, it really is just a conversation and hence posts can be as empty as most of them are.
