I wrote a post in error, not realizing who was being talked about. I tried to delete it, and got an error I had been “doing that too much.” At most I’ve deleted one other post in the past month. I was told to wait 30 seconds, so I assumed I had accidentally clicked it twice. But I hadnt–as the post was still there upon refresh. I waited the allotted time and tried again, and it appeared to delete. But, upon refresh, the comment was still there. And when I tried to delete it one more time, I was told that I had to wait 10 hours to try again.
Not only does it seem to be glitchy, but such protection seems unnecessary since we have the five minute edit rule here. So it would make more sense if deletion were also confined to those five minutes.
