Why do we have to wait two minutes???

Why do we have to wait two minutes to e-mail a thread to a second person?????

It's very inconvenient when I want to send a thread via e-mail to two or three people.

Any chance of eliminating the "wait" time, or at least reducing its length???

Sorry you are having trouble lightfin.

I just emailed a thread to myself and it was virtually instantaneous.

Are you having any other issues with your computer in general?

Lightfin was actually referring to the fact that if you e-mail using the thread tool, and then try to e-mail the same thread again to someone else, you get a message from the forum board software that says:

"This forum requires that you wait 120 seconds between sending emails. Please try again in 114 seconds."

My guess is that is done to prevent spamming or to prevent the server from getting bogged down.
