problem

you wait days for the mine to finish

you dont wait days to be able to queue a new mine.. you just queue it on a different perm...

thats the production capacity... and in that respect..by that measure.. foundries above 5 are excessive..

and as they are excessive for ship building... it seems to just be.. .....excessive :)

Doesn't really matter if you think it is excessive. People are free to build whatever they want on their own planets.
TBH, sounds like you are trying to stir something up. Telling someone "It's excessive to build very large foundries, and here's why..." is simply offering an explanation for one's beliefs. It's not like he said "You do not have the right to build high foundries" or "I forbid you to build high foundries." Why so confrontational for no reason?

This was never about people's rights. How did you even go there? So every time someone disagrees with your play style, that automatically means they are stepping on your freedom/rights?

I have a simple method of determining whether to build the next level foundry or not.

I ask myself this simple question;

Does the cost and build time of the next level mine exceed the cost and build time of the next level foundry?

If yes then I build the next level foundry.
If no then I build the next level mine.

As to the question of what is the highest level of foundry to build should be;

My answer is the highest foundry level you can get before you run out of slots.

for a mining roi player it is excessive but if you run a fleet that needs fast rebuild times to get back up to peek power than higher foundries help a lot. I upped mine in x1 from f4 -f6 to rebuild once as I still had res from a hit the week before when I made a second hit and it would have taken me around 3 weeks with an f4 and building on my f2 other planets to spend all my res. If you up it just for mines though then you are losing out on roi just for the instant gratification (instant can be days apparently :P)

Absolutely nothing. I\'ll cuss a few times, mutter "holy crap, I\'m not even going to battlecalc that" and have nightmares about 10000 capitol ships descending upon my homeworld.

As far as all around foundries go, I base my decision on whether my current foundry level will result in my waiting to spend res with all planets already building. If so, I build a round of foundries before the next mine level.

I up my foundries based on how much res I produce.  I have 1 foundry that can spend all of my daily mining income in a 24 hr period.  I keep my other foundries 1 level below that one.

If I get a big hit I spread the res around to other planets but for the most part my ship building happens at my big foundry.

Everything I say is likely a couple of years out of date

That is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your incoherent, rambling response, did you come close to making what could be considered a rational thought. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

I fave F8 and my mines are all 36/31/31 on average.  I have some higher hydro mines though.

My next step is crystal 32
