    Question Delay in reporting malware posts

    The board imposes a 4-minute delay between reporting spam and other problematic posts.

    Why?

    There are currently three spam threads, one of which I reported.

    So I have to wait 4 minutes to report the second, then another 4 minutes to report the third.

    There's no time delay imposed on the spammers posting their garbage in the first place.

    Why is there a forced delay in me reporting them?

    Well, I have wondered as well.
    This will require dipping into the code which might happen pretty soon as I have another issue that requires that.

    Thanks, Bob.

    I'll report the other baddies as soon as I'm able.
