10 minutes wait for post

by /u/XBox · 1 votes · 3 months ago

Why does someone have to wait 10 minutes before submitting another post? I don't understand that after posting when I want to submit the second post I have to wait for another 10 minutes before posting. And also why is the minimum comment 5?

let's say I want to reply to a comment and I only need to say yes but I can't because the minimum word is 5.

Is this for DDoS protection or what?

It's for spam prevention. We don't want people (specifically vendors) to get butchered by our filters. If all you do is make posts and don't comment or vote there is a heavy chance you will get flagged by our automated systems. So we give a bit of a cool down time to both prevent spam bots from rapid firing quickly and to prevent the filters from adjusting to spam like behavior (it's a feedback loop).

If you post and comment more often you should notice the time it takes to allow the post will be reduced or even eliminated.

Yeah, thanks for explaining. Though I got the first one.

I'm thankful for TOR. It taught me extra patience. Sometimes I feel like in the 2000s again. Every teenager should experience this.
