Post Too Soon
« on: Oct 26, 2004, 07:42 PM »
When I post a message sometimes I realise I've made a minor typo, and hit Edit to go fix it. When I do this, and hit 'Submit', I get a page saying I'm making a post too soon after the other. Is there a reason for this? Is it needed? I know it prevents flooding, but gawd, it drives me nuts. Just my 1 cent.

That happens to me a lot too BK, I am a freak about misspelled words, so if I find one in my post then try and go back to fix it I get that warning.

HINT HINT...spell check?  Just wondering
My God...what a drunk horror show!

I beleive that feature is meant to muck up "flooding" by trolls, or at least slow 'em down.
If I feel too relaxed to be sure about spelling, I will sometimes write the post in Word and cut and paste it here.

I get it too Kid, annoying but I am certinly not going to cut and paste my message from word.  I am the Typo Queen and I love it! :twisted:
