Getting a "time limit" error trying to publish a new diary.

I have written another diary (have one up currently from yesterday). I pressed the button to publish and got a pop-up saying, "Slow down! You have reached your time limit for publishing new stories". Could you explain what this is, please? I've never seen it before.

By the way, I searched in recent discussions and found a few other discussions, but only the question is accessible, not the response.

    We're aware of an intermittent issue producing the "slow down" message.
    Try this workaround if you happen to encounter this publication throttle: publishing from your drafts page. That is, instead of publishing from the page on which you compose the story, save it and then go to your own draft queue. Publishing from there is not affected.
