Yup, I noticed that too, and FWIW I liked the idea. It can be a useful
"countermeasure" to avoid misuse of d-d-a.

Still, that seems to me a nice complement to proper instructions on how
to use the -publicity "services" for project members. I think there is
quite some ignorance on the subject or, at least, I was suffering of
that ignorance.  If my draft text was OK-ish, I suggest doing both:
implementing the delay and publishing proper instructions under your
Team/ page (I can do that if you want); also I believe you should
announce that instructions to the project.

Just my 0.02€,
