We assume an exponentially rising hadronic mass spectrum ∼exp (m/T0) and consider means for avoiding a limiting temperature at T = T0. It is possible to do so if the single-particle potential rises at least as fast as m, or if the finite size of hadrons is taken into account, or both. Applications to heavy ion collisions, the early universe and Monte Carlo simulations of the thermodynamics of lattice QCD are mentioned.
