The current time is 30 seconds. This may seem like a short time, but if you are quickly answering about 15 posts at once, it is really annoying. It's not like we are actually spamming up the forum (except maybe me and UK_45!) by posting every thirty seconds, 24 hours a day, so why not make it five seconds, or ten seconds?

Acctually i hardly remeber that page i tend to read threads fully and stick to the ones i can give some on-topic comment to (now-a-says anyway)

I reckon if you are posting quicker than 30 seconds then you haven't had time to consider what you are saying.

Personally I would struggle to compose and type a message in under 30 seconds anyway. 30 seconds isn't long when alls said and done - only about half a minute or so . . .

OK, TBH usually it's where I write a response then forget to send it, then send one, then go to send the other one, then have to leave it, then write another response and post that, then remember I haven't posted the one I couldn't post earlier e.t.c...

To be honest, the limit is fine - I very rarely get caught out by it and it does cut down on accidental double posts while discouraging short replies / chat.

The limit is fine and is in place for a reason. Some boards don't even allow you to post without moderator approval.

GBM can I suggest that you pay more attention? ;)
