I just clicked 'send' again and the post went so no big deal. My AV etc is all up to date.

It was the 'amusing' title that I thought I would share.
(Well, amusing to me that is!!)

The flood control is a feature of the forums software. It shouldn't really be a problem for most members but it will prevent people re-posting within the 12 seconds and it's use is to try and prevent spammers bombarding the forum with spam within a limited time period. On it's own, it's not a great deterrent, but combined with other features it's an additional security measure.
