Is this a feature to stop spamming? Is there a way of turning it off?

If I go to answer a few posts quickly I start getting these.

I think many forums stop replies being added until 30 seconds or 1 minute has passed between hitting the reply button. Only forum admins can disable it.

It is as you surmised, to stop spam in the main.

Sometimes, the admins will have to block IP addresses as there are "bots" that can cause problems by spamming forums with replies such as:-

"Buy the latest smartphone form us here at smarty-farty-dot-com and save £200 on the bew Samsung and HTC" or something like that, with a shopping list with 50 phones in it!

I often run into that, not too bad when you factor in i type with 2-3 fingers, and the amount of time i spend here.
So glad there are not a onsite timer, that would probably bum me out.
Then again often i am in another window or maybe a game on top of this.

I get a version of the same message all the time, especially while I am composing posts as if there is some background process going on. And I am still getting logged off unexpectedly, also while composing posts. Often I discover that entire posts are lost even after I have hit "save draft" and get a little green confirmation indicator. I'm experiencing other issues as well such as copy and paste anomalies. Sorry to have to say this but all in all I really wish we could go back to the older forum software that ran like a Swiss watch. :(.........and had much better emojis! :)

This just happened. I was viewing a post when all of a sudden I got this notice.

I reloaded the page and discovered that I was still logged on, so I decided to go back to the home page.

Suddenly, I got the following notice, which like I mentioned above is a "version" of the OP's "Oops!" notice.

I reduced the time limit between posts. If there is an uptick in spam, will adjust it back.

The security error seems to be something different...maybe a firefox / xenforo thing.

Thanks, I'm used to counting down & waiting fairly often as well well when I'm answering a lot of posts quickly rapid fire.

Just had a mail cuz there was action in a thread i watch, problem is i never watch any threads.
This is the #2 time it have happened to me, this time it was the wide dynamic range thread

# edit. actually it now looks like every single thread i have posted in i am also watching, though thats strange cuz i have just gotten that 1 mail, and i am after all in a few threads and even ones that still see action.
