This is getting ridiculous. The amount of time I have to wait to post my next message is getting longer and longer, and I only have one window open. Other people here like to have multiple windows open. I don't see how this spam control thing helps. Carlos still manages to spam. Wink Please turn it off or at least reduce the time amount.

I have about 2 or 3 windows open, just to read new posts. I dont reply to them all.

I'll leave that up to Vanhal, it's only 60 seconds anyway, plenty of time to browse around.

He is punishing us for having fast connections! Is it my fault I am a fast typist?

Hell no! When I get oppressed from being able to type 42 words per minute, I'll send so many complaints to whoever does it that they won't know what hit them!

Typing a lot can be a gift, and a let down. Lets see, I have to wait a minute to post this. Hmm, what to do? La de da, dum de dum de dum. La la. Oh, hurry up!

I type fast aswell. But you shouldn't need to post within a minute of making another one, I did suffer from this aswell but still, it's up to Vanhal.

I can type between 70 and 80 words per minute. Most of my posts are less than 70 words.

I know, but you can make a post in less than a minute without having to post in another topic within a minute.

That's why I try to type as long posts as I can, then it will take up a minutes time, and then I can post it straight away. Although it doesnt always work it helps. It is really annoying when you have to type a big long post, and then the net disconnects you, because then you may find that all your typing gets lost when you press the back button. I always copy the text before I press submit, just incase.

Scooter, an idea, add the line "STOP SPAMMING" to your signature. It'd be easier than typing it every time Wink

Or someone could press submit lots of times and post the same post MANY times. And they'd get about 25 posts at once, until they were deleted of course.

And these tools that could spam it, are you talking about the
CarloTech Spam-o-matic 2002?

Joking carlos, joking. YOU DONT SPAM!

How about reducing time between posts to 30 seconds or something?

Could the spam cannon 2000 make it appear as if 138 users were online as the same time?

Double posting by pressing submit twice doesn't work here. Thanks to the limit Wink

thats good so that you don't accidentally post twice, in other forums (not this one) I have sometimes accidentally pressed the submit button twice

At bcfiles and effiles you can press submit lots of times, and you'll get lots of posts, but there is no post count is there.
