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!

In theory you could get more entries by getting a free 60 day visa during this year's peak season....60 day single entry tourist visas are free from Dec 1st 2016 till Feb 28th 2017.
Getting a visa is always a hassle though, even when it's a free one, and it uses up more pages on your passport than stamps do.
