The complexity is increasing more and more as suggestions keep coming. I 
don't want to call this a bike shed yet, but it surely seems to be going 
to be one.

First of all, this spam problem isn't (yet) a big issue. It might become 
an issue, and it might not. If it does, then we could start from the 
simplest solution, a simple spam filter and moderation by the 
maintainer. Limiting messages should be discussed as a last resort, when 
everything else didn't worked.
