    Please, let’s do a fundraiser to get money for upgrades on the ancient board software. This error message needs to die.

    I've never seen that one. What causes it?

    I get that now and then. I usually exclaim, if I move any slower I'll be walking backwards! It seems to appear soon after I've signed on, or if I take a while doing an edit. Sometimes it will eat the draft. Other times the post shows up just fine.

    I believe it is a purpose built function to stop spam and rapid posting. I may be wrong.

    Don't know what causes it, but I know if I go back to my previous page it will double post.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Never minded being told to slow down. Well, unless I'm eating bacon. I want my share and some of the other's.

    I've gotten it a few times. Happens when you click the "Send Post" button but the page doesn't reload immediately with your newly posted content and you hit the button again.

    If you get the “Slow Down” message, you probably double clicked the post button.

    I love this forum because it’s very lightweight, new forums are usually full of Javascript stuff that is broken for me 99% of the time, because I actually practice safe browsing and don’t allow scripts unless I absolutely have to.

    PipesMagazine runs on Wordpress and as a User Experience Strategist/Designer I rather like it. The message you saw is for spam protection.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Albert Einstein was once quoted as saying, “I believe that pipe smoking contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” One of the reasons behind this statement is that pipe smoking is meant to be a slow leisurely activity. It takes patience to smoke a pipe. Unlike cigarettes and cigars, there is a certain amount of technique to smoking a pipe. Where cigars and cigarettes can just be picked up, lit and puffed on, pipes require the development of a technique in order to get the best smoking experience.

    spam protection

    I always thought this as well. I've seen that message a few times, usually when I post too fast.
