Double posting when a user has an option to edit his/her posts, no character limit to a post and multi-quote when s/he wants to reply to several users makes it seem the user is purposefully trying to bump their post count up so enforcing this rule stops them dead in their tracks.
Also, it is *really* annoying to find five or six replies in succession by the same person (many even consider it outright spam) when the same could have been done in one single post.

tl;dr: it's impolite and there are alternatives.

I hate to sound cynical, but if they can't even be bothered to read the rules (and, as far as I remember, it is at least implied that double posting is bad in the rules), then that won't help much.

Please speak correctly. I can't understand what you're saying.

And the fact that he posted on a dead topic: :dry: :evil_monkey: :evil: but I'll let a moderator handle it.
