    Reduce or remove. Other forums don't have restriction like this.

    I thought it was 30? Either way I've never had a problem with it.

    I have problems with it. I usually check "new posts" and create tabs for all the threads i'm interested in then go through one by one and reply. I'm usually quicker than 45 seconds. Just reduce to 30, imo.

    Most if not all forums have flood restrictions. They may just be more or less than BF. Regardless, I don't think it's a significant inconvenience, and is meant to deter people from spamming.

    So you can spam consistently? Fuck no. Never, ever disable it. 30 seconds is fine.

    If you're browsing, reading and posting in a thread and it takes a total of less than 45 seconds, you need to read the damn thread first and put more thought into your posts.

    I voted to not remove it. MAYBE have it disabled/reduced in teh void, that's it.

    I agree with this. Personally, I never had a problem with it, except back in the days I was a normal member and was avidly posting in D2/Wc3.

    The only people that seem to have a problem with it are the people who post A LOT, well from my perspective.

    There is a difference between spamming and posting at a fast rate. Spamming is when you do off-topic nonsense while you are at it. Hell, DM and I used to have your post rate before he came back.
