comment "You can only post once every 20 minutes."?
@bmike: yes, this is a fact I didn't consider. But that's only the CAPTCHAs and not the posting of questions. Thanks nevertheless for pointing it out. Much appreciated.

comment Bugging message "You can only post once every 20 minutes"
@BilltheLizard: I have; whether you deem them supporting arguments or not is a whole different story. My point is that any measures that annoy legit users more than illegitimate ones (i.e. spammers) aren't helpful. But I can see how others have different opinions. On the other side all the arguments I have seen so far make (sometimes offensive) assumptions about the asker of the question, his/her motives and lack of research. Why not make this dependent on the network-wide rep, for example? Makes no sense? Too complicated to implement?

comment Can the Time Capsule serve an Apple TV without a powered on Mac?
Thank you. Even though this is bad news (and yes, I will discuss a jailbreak with my SO), it's better to know than not to know. +1

Still can't see this as a feature, but thanks for the answer.

comment Why are low-rep users rate-limited when posting questions?
That was my thinking too when I hit it on a site where I have less than 125 rep, but it makes no sense for users with a network profile where you have thousands of points on several SE sites respectively. Why would I suddenly become a spammer? In that case it's likelier that my account was compromised in which case I'd rather that a mod/admin steps in and locks it.

@BilltheLizard: as much as I appreciate your contributions elsewhere, I wish I could downvote that comment of yours. I don't think I am the only one who ponders questions sometimes for weeks, but at least for hours - including research - before I post them. Sometimes it's wrong search terms, admittedly. But then the least the question will do is to provide a semantic connection between my wording and previous wordings of the question to non-semantic search engines. Given the original intent behind StackOverflow this doesn't seem like a bad idea ...

@Sam: that's quite a ridiculous statement as it assumes there cannot be two subsequent and yet unrelated questions.
