    Default Unduly Short Timeout Limit on Posts

    I can't post a simple three-line post without being timed out.

    Is anyone really past-posting plays within that time frame? (To the extent folks talk about sports betting in the first place here.)

    What is the effen rationale for making it so hard to post on here? Yes, you can do workarounds, e.g., writing in a word processing program and cutting and pasting over.

    But do you really want to make it that involved to do a simple short post here?

    How quick are you being timed out?
    There's a 5 minute limit to edit a post after its been submitted...

    Not even getting to that point, of editing a posted post.

    Timing out during the initial posting.

    For example, this post timed out:

    Sorry, my 'druthers (a distinctly Southern contraction of "would rather") don't work that way. : ^ )

    Call me when the actual money cut payouts, with ties, get to 5K.

    The tech crew in Costa Rica will be alerted first thing tomorrow morning.

    Cannot have one of our smartest contributors denied necessary access.

    Wonder if we could transfer the limitations Squarepants is experiencing to some of our other not-so-smart contributors?

    There you go, John, a graded or weighted timeout feature, like the producer's hook during the call-in segment of a radio show, lol.

    Thanks for listening and following through with the folks down south.
