In a conversation of n people, fairness dictates you're entitled to talk up to 1/n of the time.

If you (like me) frequently take up more space than that, honestly truly, do you believe, deep down, you actually deserve a bigger share because of the quality of what you're saying?

@richdecibels Definitely agree with this principle in terms of getting people who like the sound of their own voice to talk less.

However, there's also the fact that in any given group, some people have more domain experience than others.

That shouldn't be used to silence people but not should it be used to force people who are there to 'lurk' into active participation.
