I think it is a sensible - and given the volume of this list, pretty much essential - measure.

I know on other lists - Governance, I believe, there's a limit of long-standing (is it 3/day?)

As to it being a breach of freedom of expression, if that's argued I would argue against it. After all, you are not prevented from expressing yourself, you are simply incentivised to do it more briefly and concisely, or to do it tomorrow ;)

I know some will jump that it is will be breach to freedom of expression :-) (which in fact will be somehow true), but frankly it is becoming not easy to keep track of everything posted on the list. (I have to catchup with 300+ emails after few days off) Can_we/should_we do anything at all about that? Thoughts?
