Why do I get a flood control message every time I answer a U2U?

I can understand the theory, but, why should I have to re-type every message that won't go through?

People think I am ignoring them.

Am I supposed to re-think a reply?

Can somebody explain the flood control crappola to me, because really, I don't get that many U2U's, and it is insulting that I can't reply to the ones I get.

Sometimes it takes me days to reply, do to flood control. This, is not right, so, what is up?

Are all our U2U's being that scrutinized?

As I understand it only takes one minute to be able to send another U2U.

At least that's the way it's been working for me.

It's so people don't spam private messages.

You just need to wait a minute or two between each U2U you send off.

Ok, well, ya, I only get a few from people on here. I takes me a long time to send a reply to most people I respond to.

I don't instant message in a U2U.

My reply takes a lot of thought when I send one. So, this is frustrating to me.

edit for typoooooooooooooo

As noted there is a delay to prevent spamming and the like. It also helps server loads if Im not mistaken.

Cheers

I recommend writing everything in notepad and then copy&pasting it into the webform. Make it a habit. Along with the U2U issue, I also notice that I sometimes have to edit and save three or four times to make a single change when I update posts. The ATS website has some quirks.

Thanks Fred!

I guess I give this site way to much credit for the reasons you listed.

I can only imagine now, the crap you all have to sort through to send my harmless messages, being a member of this site. I am sorry, but I have to give a
to your response. Messages among members are what they are. Among members.

Thanks for the reply. I appreciate it, since I thought I was under some sort of scrutiny. I don't ge that many messages, but the ones I do get, are very important to me.
