    We have been hit with spammers pretty hard in the past weeks, and @WebmasterAlex has had to put in various restrictions to stop these spammers. This may inadvertently have affected some our our regular posters, too. I'm tagging Alex to see if there is something to be done about our regular posters' threads/posts.

    ....and it happened AGAIN!!!! This time it timed me out for 39 minutes and 47 seconds, but when the time finally lapsed, I got this message:

    "(You have insufficient privileges to reply here.)"

    ...and that lasted another 3 minutes or so....

    This has happened to me as well. I understand the reasoning behind it, but when you are trying to get your 10 posts in to DM someone it's a bit frustrating. :(

    ....I'm not posting particularly fast, so I cannot understand why this keeps happening...
