What Happened To That Bulk Publishing Cap In The WP7 Marketplace?

Just two weeks ago Microsoft announced new app publishing limitations.

Effective Friday 9/30 we are limiting the number of apps that can be published in a single day without prior agreement to 10. This means that no more than 10 apps by the same developer will be certified per day (down from 20). In addition we will monitor the number of apps published – not just certified – in a given day and be more proactive in correcting instances where the 10 app limit is exceeded. This may include the unpublishing of apps, and in extreme cases, temporary or permanent suspension of an offending developer’s Marketplace credentials.

Today Scrollmotion unleash a fury on the Marketplace. Pages of new apps. They are all books and I don’t think this is spam by any means (as they are real titles) but the end result is that it’s now impossible to find any other new apps so the effect is bad for other developers. Hopefully this gets under control sooner rather than later…
