Name calling, flaming, obscenities, threats are not constructive.

Those are not arguments. *This* thread is an argument, for example.

We will call them disputes then.

I do not see the point of keeping such a limit at all or lowering it. For GiB and company, it doesn't make a difference if they post nonsense once a minute or as fast as they can type. For the regular members, waiting one minute it not that difficult either.

Just means having to check more because they can now post more. You once had to report a lot of spammers, imagine 10 times that amount.

Waiting one minute is very difficult, I have only a limited life span.

Waiting 30 seconds is still half as difficult. And it usually takes me one minute to load the page, type the post etc.

That's true, ShivamS!

Character is who you are when no one is looking.

I have only a limited life span

That is a western viewpoint.

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?

Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

What if it is correct?

Also, the eastern says that you have an infinite life span. But I do not see why it implies that I can do productive things all along the period.

Unlikely.

There will be time enough for all the quality posts. The flood count does not hinder them at all.

Unlikely? Did you do the compute the probability with sage?

M has a built in command for that.

What you've written in post 32 here is a direct contradiction of what you posted in post 7 there.

The fact that you searched that makes you abnormal.

Change that to 1-2 minutes then.

All forums have a flood control. The ones who do not, do not allow any chatting at all. Not even a thanks.
