    So when posting on one thread then flipping tabs to post on another I often get this warning. I appreciate its an anti robot thing, but do you guys think you could reduce the delay time? Some of us are not actually senile, its bad enough waiting for all the laggy crap in windows, android and apple without you lot adding to it.

    yes whatever peter, its just to do with how fast you type/think.

    Have you tried chamomile tea @dbc?

    I did, but that stopped the keyboard from working at all. (Unless that was an oblique reference to having the painters in?)

    Go for quality rather than quantity.

    No issue. Why are you in such a hurry that you need so may tabs open and feel the need to respond to each one?

    This thread doesn’t seem to tally with his posting history.

    Yes I thought that too ^^ which says more about me than him/her sadly…

    Just have a break from work so have a quick browse and then bash a few replies out.

    Anyway look it’s not a major problem, sometimes you type fast, sometimes you don’t. I am not sure why my personal morals come in to this. I just want to be able to reply at the pace that suits me. Your timer makes that lag sometimes, which is annoying and boring, you have the power to change that, is it too much to ask?

    Re posting history – I have replied since so it wipes the time difference.
    But there was a history on the hubs, this, and vice threads which was all around the same time.

    The timer exists to stop spam bot and members overloading the forum. You only have to wait a short while before you can rush out that vital lol.

    I originally thought the ‘slow down’ thing was to help prevent double posts, but yeah, it’s probably an anti-spam measure. Without it a bot (or disgruntled user) could readily flood the forum with thousands of junk messages. For that reason alone I can’t see it being removed.

    However,

    you have the power to change that

    … even if I thought it was a good idea to remove it, we really don’t have that power at all. The best we could do is ask the tech guys to review it (and you could do that yourselves if you so desired).

    You sound very angry. Like one of those people who makes loads of noise when your typing.

    Ever thought of slowing down a bit? I think you move too fast.

    Oh get over yourself. The translation is that it’s there for a good reason which is critical to the stability of the forum and thus far more important than one person’s impatience, and we’ve “addressed user concerns” by explaining this to you.

    I read that more as a comment on the quality of Drac’s response, as opposed to your more reasonable explanation of why its there.

    What bollocks. I said at the beginning that

    I appreciate its an anti robot thing, but do you guys think you could reduce the delay time?

    What I got from drac was dissaproval and sarcasm. S/He could have said, “the timer has been proven to be excatly the right time to be fast enough for the user experience but slow enough to prevent the bots, we can’t do anything about it sorry”. IE proving that he had considered it. But instead I got an electronic Eff U.

    What you got was a query.

    Oooh! You added a bit.

    I hadn’t considered it I reenforced why it exists.

    Not in a mood, just mild irritation at being treated with contempt.
