    I posted a message and then decided to Edit it. When I submitted it said I can't post that fast. Well, I don't think that slow. So the contribution is gone.

    Maybe this apparent automated spam control needs a little adjustment.

    I think it is only set at about 1 minute. I have noticed errors in my posts and went back to correct and got the same response. I just wait it out.

    OK, flood control was set at 45 seconds but I reduced it to 30 seconds. The purpose of flood control is so that when those idiots and spamming robots come in here and start posting pornography and whatever else it limits them to one post. The lower the threshold the more likely they will post multiple times.

    Agree completetly, it's not much of an inconvenience.
    And if it helps reduce the SPAM, well, that's a good thing!!! :wink: :smt038
