I think there's a 90 second waiting period between posts in the same thread. That's meant to keep the spontaneous brawls from going on. Gives one time to think before the next punch...so to speak. :saint:

Correct. Anti-spam, and overload protection in case of an attack to overwhelm the site by that method.

They probably get a time delay waiting for the post to "take" - and end up hitting the submit button a second time - at just the perfect time to make that happen. Seems pretty rare. I notice that sometimes the software hiccups, and the same post displays twice - but it was only posted once. You can tell by comparing the PID# of the post.

I liked my explanation better. Seems like only yesterday when I had a bit more of a fractious presence here on the board, and the wait period, if I recall, was 15-seconds.
I was honored by that show of respect.

Then, it went to 60 seconds.
Jeeeezo...I was wallowing in power.

Then....90 seconds.
I was on top of my game....

And now....I'm told it's nothing more than an effort to thwart SPAM.

BTW....I love Spam.

"We bad." twenty-four thousand nine hundred and fifty-six posts

"We are bad." thirty-two thousand seven hundred and sixty-seven posts, with a FEELING SMUG emoticon.

This is referred to as a "contribution" by Mr. Thirty-two Thousand.

I most often think of gratuitous post counting when I see this kind of "contribution". Anyone else feel that way?

I do throw in some pretty detailed trip reports, maps, and history stuff along with my casual posts Perry... Some can't figure out the way to post photos, so I do that for them... I have even made web pages by request to show photos of cool Baja places (do you remember?)... If you prefer a Baja forum with fewer posts, there are several others out there!
