Once you've been too curious for too long, you hit the Stack Overflow wall:

Rather than try to post the question every hour until it is finally allowed to go through, it would be nice if SO showed you a message such as, "You can post another question in 1 day, 18 hours, and 0 minutes" or some such.

    People asking that many questions are almost certainly not spending a lot of time constructing their questions, and tend to be asking fairly low quality questions. I'm not really bothered by them being bothered a bit.

    But I am bothered a bit by you not being bothered a bit, and I'm even more bothered that I'm still bothered. "Oh, bother," to quote Winnie the Pooh. Mar 25, 2014 at 21:07

    @Servy There's a corner-ish case here - folks with low reputation that hit this restriction thanks for sharing an IP with a bunch of other users.

    It's more about that, that doing something like that is about 5 minutes in code (3 minutes to find the place, 1 minute to fix and 1 minute to commit the changes) which would save hundreds of meta questions "when I will be able to ask question again" Mar 25, 2014 at 21:49

    In other news, you will have the pleasure of waiting an hour to post a new question, only to find out at the end of that hour that you need to wait another 59 minutes.
