Is this thing really necessary? It's a big hindrance when I'm trying to put together a coherent rebuttal and I'm stuck with a 15 second rate-limit on the search function.

I understand if the server load is significantly alleviated, but it seems that a search takes no more CPU cycles than bringing up a thread which must happen far more often than searches.

Am I missing something??

3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

Only 10 seconds of your time each search.

It's 15 seconds, and if putting together a post requires me to research just four topics, it's an entire minute of waiting for, typically, less than 500 milliseconds of CPU time.

Most of my searches take on the order of 100 to 200 milliseconds of CPU.

Also, I've done some tests with intentionally-designed complex searches that, based on my knowledge of hashing, searching, and sorting algorithms, should take a long time; even the very complex ones take only about 300 milliseconds.

Meanwhile, bringing up a thread in the usual way pegs the CPU for maybe 200 milliseconds or so, and most of that is generating the HTML, not searching.

So, am I missing something?

I hate that limiter! Please remove it if it's not really necessary!

search... 1. no results... wait 15sec... search again.... goto 1...

Okay I've disabled it for the time being. We'll see if there's any significant impact on our server performance.

Thanks for the suggestion!
