Plugin Directory Admin: Flag accounts who submit a lot of plugins super fast

Description

People who submit a high volume of plugins right after making their accounts are doing so because of the following reasons

  1. abusive behavior (trying to spam the directory)
  2. new user/inexperienced behavior (super excited but not always fully aware of the amount of work that goes into plugins)
  3. finally moving from self-hosted to .org (this is very rare)

The first one needs to be caught and stop. The second needs to be slowed down so they don't overwhelm themselves and we lose them as a dev. The third is probably fine, but needs to be checked on :)
