C’mon now, who else is with me? Next to my ISP going down and Internet Trolls, forum time limits bug me the most. I know, I know, most of you haven’t even encountered them; that’s probably because you aren’t a real bad case of ADHD with a few cups of coffee in ya. When I get on a roll, I’m flying, boys and girls.
Here’s the message:
This forum requires that you wait 30 seconds between posts. Please try again in 12 seconds.
Oh, boy. That one gets me every time. Inmates walking from their Death Row cells to the electric chair don’t experience a longer twelve seconds. Twelve seconds seems shorter when an intruder’s in your house and time has stopped. For a street car, twelve-seconds is pretty quick; for a rabid, hyper-active forum poster, it’s a dead eternity filled with uncomfortable hatred.
So, what do I do during these wait periods?
I switch screens, I add something to my ‘To Do’ list, I message someone – anything but wait. Sitting idle until I’m allowed to do something doesn’t fly well with me. Oh, it’s a killer.
Anyhow, I just thought I’d share my extreme dislike for time-limits on forum posts. I type fast. Too fast for these V-Bulletin places. I’m beginning to learn, though; in between posts I’ll fly to Facebook or someplace for a few seconds so that I don’t have to see that awful screen.
