    I just got this message when posting here on BB. I had never gotten one before.
    What is it talking about?

    "Sorry, we can not process your request. The board administrator has enabled flood protection for this function. You must wait at least 20 seconds before trying this request again.

    Note: Using your back button to return to the previous page may cause the data you were attempting to submit to be lost. Instead, you should use your browser's reload button when the time period has elapsed. "

    I think it's a SPAM protection feature of this software.

    A lot of boards have it in place for search and postings to keep out the SPAM.

    Oh I see. I just had a visual of "flood protection" [​IMG]
    So you could say this is BB's levy [​IMG]

    Ok, I know I need to go to bed!
    That was just plain stupid.

    I might go in a minute

    You may well have accidently hit the post button twice, setting it off!

    Don't know, kind of thought it was funny myself [​IMG]

    Then again, maybe someone on the board is trying to tell you your posts are considered spam :D
