Limit number of reports that can be dropped in a small area
This morning a Wazer dropped 17 reports in a parking lot. This is really uncalled for. The number of reports should be limited to X number of reports to X number of feet/km. It is OK if it is coming from multiple users, for instance an accident or closure on a highway. But one user should not be able to drop that many reports in one small area. This was limited to a small parking lot where this happened.

Sounds like a good idea to me - I have dealt with users dropping 4 or 5 in the same area, with no explanation, and if they do respond to a request for info, you get some BS response like "this is wrong." I also like the one suggestion from kyhtak about allowing higher-rank editors to post more.
People used to have a lot of URs dropping the SLs when that started. Now it would be LG,
But for users that are only Rank 1 there should be a limit

This is a good idea . . . until it bites an editor who has a legitimate reason to drop a bunch of UR's in a small area, and is really frustrated by the lack of ability to do so. Maybe waive the limit for editors above a certain rank?
Right off hand, I can't think of what that reason would be, but it's sure to pop sooner or later.
2 or 3 at most within a 500 meter stretch should be sufficient, IMO
