The question is, is there a practical solution to this problem apart from having multiple DMs?
Slow down.

If your players are too eager to post every two seconds, then maybe they need to learn a little restraint. Message board roleplaying involves time gaps, needed to make sure that all of the characters are at least aware of the events.
