In essence, time is just a state of mind... time is not tangible, you cannot touch it, or lick it... time is just a concept... per se, a theory. As such, time cannot be too long, or too short as in reality, time does not exist... it is paradoxical to think otherwise.
So, the problem is not how long you have to wait between posts, but how you percieve the speed of time passing.
It is up to you, your responsibility, to reduce your inner-metabolism to a rate in harmony with the delay between posts... it is you who, ultimately, controls time... and as time is pliable, you can mould it to suit you... you do not need Moderators to do it for you.
In all honesty, the Moderators are very busy people... and they should not have to worry about such issues... they have to watch out for folks swearing at each other, and being rude to each other... they are not timelords!
Perhaps, but we are not mere solitary buoys floating across the ocean of space, bending time according to our whims. We are nodes in a web. The time of the other is inter-dependent with my time and your time and the time of the hypothetical Third. If I choose to modulate time in a certain way, say I jaywalk, your time is affected by it, as you - sitting in the car - have to swerve onto the kerb, crash into a lamppost and spend the next two months in a hospital. I might even terminate your time altogether.
Therefore the Moderator has the power to alter my time. Indeed, it is the duty of such a senior position to teach and guide us in our own time-bending ways. Without such a duty, any old barmpot could be a Moderator.
For me to shift the gears of my time would require Herculian efforts. The Moderators, by virtue of their sheer talent and ability, can do this almost naturally. To change time for us, humble users, is a minor distraction from a demanding task such as subjectively pondering and deliberating whether a particular collection of letters constitutes an offensive term, whether this offensive term was intended to be offensive and, finally, whether offence was indeed caused.
