Thank You!

I would assume just to stop spamming, it isn't the only thing gated by a time limit. Trying to search new posts or through posts you've made can only be done every 30 seconds also. Posting can only be done after ?20/30? seconds (I don't remember the timer since I usually take awhile making posts).

It's both to prevent spamming and to lighten the server load, so it doesn't need to process PMs every second, which can be taxing. Most forums I've been on have some kind of time limit like this.

Moderators don't want clogs in the system. I've gotten a notification because two posts sounded familiar. They just want a clean system that flows easily for everyone. It's free so some rules are fine.

Just so the site doesn't slow I guess...
