    Mandatory 60 seconds between Private Messages - Really Necessary ???

    Does anybody think it is actually necessary to limit one PM per 60 seconds?

    I often have several PM's to reply to and on busy days I can only reply to one due to time constraints so many PM's go unanswered for longer periods than are necessary

    ebay doesn't have any such restrictions nor does any other forum I've ever used

    Maybe most forum members don't run into this issue but I did today for the 1000th time

    We must not be as popular as you, PlacerLode.
    Speaking of which, THANK YOU again for coming up with the output shaft extension that allows us to install XT and TTR motors in our TWs.

    Sounds like a reasonable request to me.

    (I have never encountered this problem due to my slow, two fingered keyboarding skills !)

    I didn’t realize that was a thing. Wonder if that’s to deter possible spammers. Hope it’s an easy fix.

    I'm guessing it's an anti-spam measure, so if a spam/bot account does get on the site it can't flood and crash the servers by sending a bazillion PMs out to every registered user.

    Other sites I've been on have some other "limit" to PM's, usually you can only send X messages per day, or your account must have a certain # of posts/karma/etc before you can PM, all with the same goal of prevent new spam accounts from creating a mess.
