What do people think about adding an anti-procrastination pony to MetaFilter?

This feature comes straight from Hacker News. If a user likes, he or she can enable "noprocrast" in their profile settings, which lets them visit for X minutes before blocking that user for Y minutes. The default is something like 30 minutes with 180 minutes of no procrastination afterwards. It doesn't time out someone making a post. Unlike StayFocusd and other browser- or system- level browsers, that user account can't get around the temporary block because it is on the server.
As someone who has disabled and re-enabled his account twice during especially busy times, I'd like to know if others would find this helpful here on MetaFilter and what the staff thinks about implementing it. I tried searching and I don't believe this is a duplicate request.
