It was set at 90 seconds... that was fine for most of us humans.

I've re-set it for 60, anything faster than that is telepathy.

I deeply thank you Snaggy, I'm sure Jas does too....perhaps that'd explain why I've not gotten a spam block message yet today...

If your thoughts aren't worth taking 60 seconds to read the post you're replying to and think about long enough to compose your reply, they probably aren't worth posting at all.

go to hell.

that took me a long time to figure out.

take your ideas with you

that took even longer.

i type fast... and may be making a short reply that doesnt require a long thought.

either that or i just think so much faster than you, it puts your simple mind into pain to try and comprehend.

again... go to hell.

jasmes take my advice even though i give very shitty advice.. the only reason i get the smallest shred of respect here is because i take flames lightly.. dont start a flame war.. especially with somebody such as Steen.. if your gonna do a flame war.. do it with somebody like dualg

I'll admit the IP blocker annoys me when I'm at work and can't post right then/there..but I can be patient.

I've tried driving up my post numbers with quick, one word or one-liner comments, but flood controls have forced me to revise them.
And a good thing it is, too!

I'm not going to flame you back or anything because it's really not worth it. My whole point is if you're not willing to take 60 seconds to load a new topic, read the new posts, compose a reply and submit it after yoru previous reply, you probably ought to just skip the topic all together because you obviously don't feel it's worth your time.

..... a mind “trip”
macaddict forums suck, they are full of flamers and stuff there, 30 sec limit makes it easyer to annoy people, thats how i look at it

90 seconds was fine. The only reason I hang around here is the number of people who think about what they are saying before they post it. That takes time. In nearly 1000 posts, I've only hit the spam block once. If you want a chat room, use IRC.
