Is there a limit on how many questions I can ask?

What's the reason for allowing only 6 questions in 24 hours?

I'm very curious, and I like to learn quickly, and I sometimes have more than 6 questions. Today was one of those days, and as I just tried asking my 7th question on StackOverflow I got the error that I'm not allowed to ask more than 6 questions in 24 hours.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

It's doubtful that you're actually learning anything if you ask that many in such a short span – random Jun 16 '12 at 20:08
@random I'm learning a lot! Take a look at my SO questions, they are specific and well contained. – bodacydo Jun 16 '12 at 20:09
Never hesitate to spend even just a few minutes using the search – random Jun 16 '12 at 20:11
They're not that bad, but it makes me think whether there was really research effort involved. – slhck Jun 16 '12 at 20:12
Thanks guys! @random - the answer to my question is actually in gdoron's reply below, where he links to 50q/month question. I'll spend more time researching before asking my next questions! – bodacydo Jun 16 '12 at 20:14
Calm down, get some rest, ask some more tomorrow. Your brain will go on Stack Overflow Overload – gobernador Jun 16 '12 at 20:14

If you need to ask more than 6 questions a day, it probably means you're asking before you try fixing the problem by your own, (which make a crappy question anyway).

You should spend some time, (more than couple of minutes) for searching the same question on the internet, or here at SO, believe me, unless you design a nuclear bomb with Assembly, that question was asked before...

This question might give you extra details: 50 question per month limit?

BTW: I believe the limit should be even lower, from six to three.

"...unless you design a nuclear bomb with Assembly, that question was asked before..." This is so true! +1 – jmort253 Jun 16 '12 at 21:30
