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...
