If the article was written after his most recent suspension... Then yes, its three times already.

The wording implies 3 times in addition to this time.

Is there a threshold?

What's the cut-off between childhood / childish imaginings and adult no-nonsense.

Presumably there is an upper threshold too after which loopiness (creative, dreamy imaginings / senility) is acceptable again.

Sudden urge to find school and go around with a stick shouting "Avada Kadavra!".

Popcorn I put more thought into fiction than theists put into reality.

I mean there's a difference between a kid thinking a magic ring will make someone disappear and believing there is a magical man in the sky that controls the entire world around us and will judge us upon death weather we are worthy enough for eternal happiness or eternal suffering.

Not to 5-year-old, there's not.

That's why I asked if there was an age threshold after which the difference becomes ... er ... troubling.

Probably when they are old enough to know the difference between reality and make believe.
