I agree that false positives are bad. But let's take a look at the past few messages people have posted, saying, "I've got a massive autoresponder problem. How do I stop it?!" We're talking about hundreds, maybe thousands of posts per day. I doubt even the most prolific poster is going to be doing more than 50 posts per day. Let's face it, an agressive autoresponder can cause a melt down. I'm all for anything that will help avoid that!
Also consider that this might be a very desirable feature on some lists, limiting the ability of a person to make excessive posts.
That's why editable numbers would work for everyone - 0 could disable the feature (and could be set to this by default), etc etc...
