Hey, i know that spamming isnt allowed on IF, point taken.
But sometimes in situations, you are actually ina regualer chat with people, and coz of the amount of posts, the spamming message comes up.
I mean in appreciation threads, there can be over 10 people at the same time, so while chatting to so many people at the same time, when the spamming message comes up, it can be quite irratating. especially if the thread is moving at 2 pages per minute.
similarily when CC openers open CC's and reserve posts, it can get a bit frustrating, coz many CC's have a good witen and decorated front page, and reseved posts are needed before anyone else posts.
I duno if i made sense, but its been quite a problem fo me, especially in CC opening.
Is there anyway this messgae can be avoided in circumstances that are not spamming???

The way it works I think is that it takes into the time and length of message.... So you can only post only a number of posts in a given time. 

It is to avoid spamming.  For example in some sections, people would just post "Thanks" or "TFS" on all topics without even at times reading them.  This really takes care of that problem.

I agree about the CC problem... The thread is going fast and keep getting that reply is a bit annoying.  But until we find a better way to deal with spamming, we have to stick with this one.

About Reserving posts, I think it's quite fine.  So you can come back and edit them in a few mins.  Or what I usually do is instead of a title in the title box I just put "Don't POST yet" or something like that so no one posts until I'm done with the page, and then I edit with the proper title.

I agree it needs to be removed from the CC section at least because if you are chatting on multiple CC's and also looking at other threads and replying you sometimes can't due to the spamming message.

i agree its kind of dfisturbing wen we r seriously posting sumthin
bt we cant blame for the msg either as many wil spam posting thanchyu and al
i think chat club is a section wer lot of spamming take place so removing the spaming message wil be like giving the spammers key to the spaming section .

so i think the spaming messages can turn up on small posts but it can exclude long posts [in CC section]
