Am I the only one who thinks that this should just be removed and the algorithm should just be changed instead?

    Implement a feature to watch an ad to speed your time up. It'd help us + give @dfox and @trogus some well deserved money. Killing two birds with one stone.

    If you work somewhere where you need to rant more than every two hours then maybe that place isn't good for your health

    I support the two hour wait. It keeps content fresh, gives each post more time, and prevents spam.

    How would the algo be changed? what about browsing recent?

    It's to minimize the impact of low quality posters, especially new users who we don't have as much info on. It's just me and @dfox so moderation would be problematic if a bunch of new users go on a tear with spammy shit.

    We looked at the recent data for post rates and very few people post more than 1 rant a day let alone 2 an hour. I did propose a more sophisticated version of this where the timer is reduced proportionately to your historical per rant upvote ratio. A lot more work, maybe someday.
