    I post in one forum, then jump to another, see a thread, then try to post to it, but I have to keep waiting. I used to be only 30 seconds or one minute, but now 2 mins. What gives?

    They bumped it to 120 seconds not too long ago. It was my understanding that they did this because of a program that just flooded the system with a porn link. It was a very long night that night and so I think thats pretty much the reason cause if looked at the times the system was able to post its links/responses I'm pretty sure was over one post per 30 seconds. Hope this helps. ;I

    I did change the setting because of the porn spammer last week. I have set some other measures in place to deal with that sort of thing, so I have changed this feature back to 30 seconds. Eric

    thanks Eric, was getting a little annoying every once in a while. I appreciate all the effort you put into your site (i'd send a donation, but i'm sorta broke right now). glad you found other ways to deal with the spam problem.
