Today was a slow day ;)

See <http://www.msapiro.net/scripts/PostLimit.py> (mirrored at
<http://fog.ccsf.cc.ca.us/~msapiro/scripts/PostLimit.py>)for a script
that limits the number of posts from a member to a list either per
calendar day or a configurable period of hours.

It could be made lots fancier with the limit and time period being list
attributes or mm_cfg variables instead of hard coded and options to hold
rather than reject, but it will work.

The post at
had a similar request plus a per list limit. A per list limit could
easily be added. It's the same thing except all post times are kept for
the list instead of separately by poster. The handler could be easily
modified to do both. Maybe on the next slow day ;)
