Limit on number of new stories?

What is this new policy that says - "Slow down! You have reached your time limit for publishing new stories".
This is my 3rd story in the past week and the 192nd over the past 3 years. And it is not some floozy one-liner or link-to-an-external-news-story type of diary.

This seems like a low-tech solution to help suppress troll diaries.

Let's raise our game, DK. We can do better.

    Problem gone. A few minutes later, the diary was allowed to publish.

    Hello, and thanks for the query.

    There is an intermittent bug now that does just what you discovered -- it inserts an odd error message and prevents publication from the story draft page. We've not been able to track it down yet. If you encounter this block again before we find and fix it, know that you can publish without incident from your own drafts queue. That is -- finish your story, save it, and then go to the draft list and publish directly from that list.

    It's a bit of a workaround, and we hope to correct the need for it. But you have the "secret sauce" now in case you see it again.
