is there an "official" list of restrictions and the reputation required to bypass those restrictions?
I'm a new user, and I am encountering quite a few restrictions.
For example, I cannot post within 25 minutes of a preceding post after I've written out a lengthy sum of words. I wish I would have known that before I took the time to write it out.

It's a bit more positive than you make it out to be. There are no "restrictions" that you "bypass". There are priveleges that you earn. Mouse over the triangle next to your username at the top of the page, and then click "priveleges" to read all about them. – yoozer8 Sep 18 '12 at 0:34

There is the privileges page.

It will show you all the existing privileges and how much reputation is needed for them.

You will find a link from the account summary drop down:
