flood control is EVIL!
When I hear somebody sigh that Life is hard, I am always tempted to ask, Compared to what?

If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.

Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.


You see things; and you say Why? But I dream things that never were; and I say Why not?

It is a hard matter, my fellow citizens, to argue with the belly, since it has no ears.

It is supposed to piss you off. What could you be posting that is small enough to post in 30 seconds that is important anyways? And if someone was actually trying to flood, hopefully having to wait 30 seconds will cause them to stop trying to flood.

*argh* FLOOD CONTROL DIE! it's not just that, it's like if you're in one forum and you send a post and then read a post that's short but even want to write a long reply the window won't open to type your reply for 30 seconds. and between that and some bad wiring [c/o me and my brother] for the dsl that causes the dsl to shut down for 1-5 minutes when the phone is picked up, i can't get posts thru lol.

<span style=\'font-family:Times\'Something told the wild geese

It was tine to go

Through the fields lay golden

Something wispered- "SNOW"

Leaves were green and stirring

Berries,luster-glossed

But beneath the warm feathers

Something cautioned- "FROST"

All the sagging orchards

Steamed With amber spice

But each wild breast stiffened

At rembered ice

Something told the wild geese

It was time to fly-

Summer sun was on their wings

Winter in their cry

The flood control is a good feature (I think)...its to prevent people from multiple submitting posts, by accident or intentionally. Every single time you click the "Add Reply" or "Post New Topic" buttons, it will create a post for each click. That is why its enabled. Trust me, you're better off than you where before, the time limit WAS 60 seconds. Now if need be, I will lower the limit to say 20 seconds. :) :)
