Lately there has been a large number of sentences added seemingly by some bot.

Here's a sample of the kind of sentences added:

Il désire gamberger.
Miou-Miou s'échappe.
Le cuisinier jongle.
Des scouts pleurent.
Vous alliez partout.
L'architecte dérive.
Des fakirs mèneront.
J'aplatis ces mises.
Des bébés embraient.
La voyageuse stagne.
Un groupe se coiffe.
Nous allons à Kyoto.
Des fumeurs aboient.
Le traitre guerroie.

A large part of these sentences don't make much sense. While they aren't all incorrect, they are overall not bringing high value to the corpus.

Possible solution

Just like we've put a limit for the amount of private messages that new users can send per day, we could put a limit on how many sentences a new contributor can add per day. This would at least give more time for admins to react and avoid thousands of nonsensical sentences being added.

It might also be a good idea to think of a level system where you have to contribute a couple sentences and get those reviewed by another member before being allowed to continue.
