If it's consistent, it can't be more than two minutes (my record minimum).

It's not new. It's part of phpBB, and the default setting is like 30 seconds.

It's supposed to help prevent robots (or trolls) from flooding the board
with posts. Dunno if it's effective or not.

And the default is 15 seconds, I checked. Dunno what it's set at here.

It comes in handy if you click on Submit twice because your connection slowed down...and your not sure if the first post was submitted. It keeps you from having to edit the second post with a nevermind comment.

Hi guys, sorry for the radio slience, sometimes the default world just plots to keep me away...

We kept the default setting, so it's 15 seconds. Man, III, I know your mind works quickly, but you must type like the wind, too.
