Further to my post about commenting in general entitled Announcement March 31st, some specific points on repetitious commenting:
Going back and forth on a point doesn’t advance discussions and, after enough rejoinders, other readers tend to tune it out. Repetitious comments made by a person or persons in a short period of time can be particularly problematic when a person replies, saying basically the same thing again, to every comment made in reply to their initial comment.
Such comments provide only redundant information and redundant thoughts/ideas while making a thread difficult to read efficiently. Some people suddenly learn of a problem with their real or alleged US citizenship and are in distress and need information f-a-s-t. As well, exchange of thoughts and ideas is hampered by repetitious and circular discussion. Please bear this in mind when commenting.
