    While I understand that stopping spam and bots are always one of the higher priorities of pretty much any web property these days.... but I have a question...

    Have I angered the elders of the internet (or at least BHW) in some way? :p I mean, I used to get the 'wait 15 seconds' and I waited + things were fine, but:

    This forum requires that you wait 15 seconds between searches. Please try again in 158 seconds.

    Really? 158 seconds? Am I that big of a threat that I must wait 2-3 minutes before checking the new posts again? or PM'ing someone? I read fast, I type fast. I move on. However I seem to be triggering more frequent & longer pause breaks now and many seem unwarranted.

    Has anyone else been noticing increasing delays on times with things that shouldn't be triggering this?

    My posts also go above the poster that posted before me.. Obviously the timing/time on this forum is messed up hard

    Well, that is my question/point. I wouldn't mind and understand if it was once in a while, but I am getting hit with these even though I wait a little bit before doing a separate search.
