It might be better to have the limit be on a per-day basis?

My guess is that Thomas's contributions were not 3 per day evenly 
spaced, but zero for a significant part of the time and then massive 
participation in one or two threads that got overwhelming.

(I am not picking on Thomas here, other than that he was at the top of 
the list, volume-wise.)

A limit of 3 posts per day would not limit even his total output (by 
much), but would perhaps keep exciting threads from exploding to the 
point of being unreadable.
