    Maybe a time limit of a minute or two between being able to post would be a good idea to cut back (or slow down) annoying spam?

    There is a 60 second wait. Remember, the proof is in the putting, putting up with some shenanigans is always needed.

    Cripes, I never thought that putting thing would come in handy. ;)

    ?? what spam? i thought posts were moderated and held a certain length of time before they show up. i havent seen any spam, really, unless its in some threads i havent read through. i must admit i dont open every thread, only ones that im interested in

    It isn't spam, per se, but a repeated post. Remember the proof is in the putting posts? Like that, only different.

    Of course, I am replying before my post is modded that says there is a 60 wait between posts, but, you know, what the hey.

    I had a quick look but didn't see it being asked/suggested before. And I din't know there was a 60 second wait already :eek:

    I found out by posting in a thread, the going to the next thread, that was only two posts long, and tried to post there. I needed to wait a bit more and got the warning.

    Xandak, it is needed, otherwise there would be so much crap here that the forum would be useless.
