This is a pretty big deal **assuming** it is uniformly enforced and not just at the "discretion of the immigration officer".
Because Thailand is so interconnected now with open land crossings, perfectly legit trips could get unstuck by this. For eg:
Fly into Bangkok, two weeks in north, then into Laos, then Cambodia and back into Thailand (land entry #1), two weeks across and into Burma, three weeks in Burma, then back overland into Thailand (land entry #2).
By this rule, the above person can't enter Thailand again overland for a year without a visa...
There will be plenty of confusion over this-especially if enforced haphazardly.
Thanks Capt for the heads up!
