Erm... are you telling me you expect limiting POSTs in one directory
to prevent you from POSTing to another? No, that will not work.
You have to have the limit somewhere that applies to what they are
posting to; the server has no reason to try to use this other .htaccess
file somewhere else on the filesystem for dealing with a request to
a different directory.
See the <Files> directive to allow for access control on a per
filename basis; put it somewhere that applies to the script (eg.
a .htaccess file in the script's directory) and off you go.
