Thanks for your comment. (Also, thanks to the other two people who linked the thread in question.) We talked about it, and for a couple of reasons it doesn't seem feasible at this time to enforce a comment limit. We'd like to focus on the content of comments, rather than the number. We also believe our current spam rule is adequate to cover the situation and to keep spam under control in the future.
