Start right now and make it good.

I've an ammendment:

Change the flood limits such that:

2. An user cannot post more than once in less than 75 seconds *in the same thread*.

3. An user cannot post in thread unless it is the first post of the thread **or** the post immediately before is done by an user *other than him*.

I would tend to think that might be difficult to implement.

Why?

Can you get that to work on your forum?

Why would I? It is a spam discussion forum!

Great idea! But then no one could bump or get others to see their edited post.

Bumping is against the rules in almost all forums.

I don't know one such forum that bans bumping.

SE, AOPS, SO... Never see it happen there.

How do you bump on SE or SO?

AoPS is just a stupid forum.

All other forums I am on allow bumping once per day.

Posting to yourself or double posting is not allowed there. Nor was it allowed on Mathiverse or Mathhelpforum.

He can sneak bump.

That is actually unethical behavior.

But if Agnishom's suggestion number 3 was enforced, if someone had seen someone's post and then they edit it, they wouldn't see it again.

Enforced? That would be my responsibility. What should I do? Bar?

Maybe there is some software for that.

A workaround could be edit notifications, so edited posts count at New posts.

It would have to be written by MIF and luckily he is not too strict about rules. I am, but have agreed to follow his lead, after all it is his forum.

I think the forum is fine as it is though. Not too many people double/triple post, so it is not a big issue.

I agree, it is better to leave it alone. I have lots of suggestions too but have to realize that the motto, "If it aint broke don't fix it," is a good one.
