Microsoft imposes limits on bulk app publishing
And, in an impressive show of customer regard, Microsoft has imposed restrictions to alleviate the problem. Writing on the Windows Phone Developer Blog, Todd Brix admits that bulk publishing "degrades [the] customers' experience...pushing the other new apps out and reducing the diversity of the shopping experience."
So, effective immediately, developers can only post 20 apps per day. They can still submit them in greater numbers, but only 20 can be certified on any given day. Twenty might still sound like a lot, but it will decrease the likelihood of seeing 100 minor variations on a single app crowding the 'New' category of the Marketplace.
Of course, there's still the issue of spam apps. But we can't single out Microsoft for letting those slip through. That's a problem for another day.

as long as they dont start acting like apple and limiting what kind of apps can be in the market, this is cool move. they are just reducing the annoyance factor by jackass developers.

PhoneArena said, "Twenty might still sound like a lot, but it will decrease the likelihood of seeing 100 minor variations on a single app crowding the 'New' category of the Marketplace." so I don't know why you posted that.
