Ooo-er....I got a message:
 
"The last posting from your IP was less than 300 seconds ago! Please try again later!"
 
Anyway....
 
Having realised that Steve is moderator for this thread, I humbly apologise and withdraw my last remark.

I just got the same message, twice.
 
Do we really have to wait 5 minutes between each posting?
 
It's my bedtime and I don't want to have to stay up that late...

Applied the restriction to prevent the board filling up with irritating little messages split over several posts, apparently in attempts to boost their authors' star ratings. I'll lift it if those individuals will desist from spamming  Roll Eyes -- Steve
 
[Later...] Aw, go on, I'll lift it anyway.

Perhaps (if it's possible?) the restriction could still be applied to prevent repeat postings to the same thread within a time period, but not to prevent a member from posting to different threads within the same period (if you follow me). As a reformed "ratings spammer" I'd be happy to accept that Wink

or maybe we could just lose the Mcdonald's style ratings and stars which introduce the  
competitive element of status
Mind you, I've heard that Novices always think like this!   Smiley
