If I post twice within 90 seconds, I get blocked and have to wait.
Is there any way to get around that?

Aye, fix that shit.

It really is annoying.

sometimes I'm taking a sneak peek at the forums when having a sleakit shite at work and I don't have the time to re-post what I just attempted.

90 seconds is way O-K for ddos protection. This place should count itself lucky if it gets 2 bots per 1.5 minutes never mind a ddos attack  :cheesy:

There's a 90 second courtesy wait for editing, which is plenty to correct a typo or three without deleting and starting again. (or is it a timeout issue?)

Anyway. Sim-Sala-Bim! Let it be 20 seconds! 😊
