spam filter kicks in when editing posts?
I understand the rationale for the 3 minute block is someone is just blasting away posts. However it seems to be blind to the difference between people posting all over the place and people editing a single comment.
Often I post, re-read the post to make sure I like what it says, then realize I should add something else or that I should reword it a bit. Unfortunately if I make 2 edits in less than a minute the spam filter kicks in.
Can the filter be made a little smarter? It seems like each account has fields associated with it of past post times. When a post is submitted and the previous two are within a minute then the 3rd is blocked. It seems like a simple matter of programming to adjust the rule to allow posts if the new post being submitted is an edit of one of those previous two posts.
