The commenting restrictions on LessWrong seem bad

I wrote a few controversial articles on LessWrong recently that got downvoted. Now, as a consequence, I can only leave one comment every few days. This makes it totally impossible to participate in various ongoing debates, or even provide replies to the comments that people have made on my controversial post. I can’t even comment on objections to my upvoted posts. This seems like a pretty bad rule—those who express controversial views that many on LW don’t like shouldn’t be stymied from efficiently communicating. A better rule would probably be just dropping the posting limit entirely.
