Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In Optimizing for Pearls, Not Sand, Jeff says that:

We now limit users (and IP addresses) to a maximum of 6 questions per day and 50 questions per month.

Is this a per-site limit or a per-network limit? It seems quite possible that a single IP address could generate more good questions that this across the wide range of Stack Exchange sites that exist.

For example, when working (at home) I have two good questions about programming and database management, then when I'm not working I have questions about the meal I'm planning to make, how to best photograph that meal for the blog post I'm going to write, and then late at night I need clarification about the rules of a game I'm playing. During the day, I also have a good idea about how to improve traffic at the beta site I'm involved with, and trigger a bug that I would like to report.

This may seem like a bit of stretch now, but assuming the number of Area51 graduates continues to increase, it will become less and less of one.

Your middle paragraph reads (in a good way!) like ad copy for the StackExchange network. – Josh Caswell Jun 14 '11 at 2:35

The limit mentioned in the blog post is a per-site one.
