Thank you for the explanation. Then, I have a suggestion: introduce a
setting on limiting and/or throttling the maximum number of messages within
a certain timeframe. 

We just had a night during which an ill-formed vacation program kept sending
messages to a list over and over again, and such a setting would reduce the
effect on user stupidity ,)
