I noticed an issue in a post, so I tried to edit it, and I received a warning saying that I would be banned if I did it twice more, as it considered me as spamming.

Now I'm not saying that my posts are all smart, but that's a slightly harsh way of putting it!  ;D


Is that part of the master plan against the spammers?

Posting this fast is considered spamming, you are warned!
You are only allowed 1 more attempt(s) after which you will be banned as spammer!


Penalizing everyone else is not an acceptable solution.

You know, this used to be a helluva good country. I don't understand what's gone wrong with it. - George Hanson, 1969

Most people think that flying a plane is dangerous, except pilots because they know how easy it is.
Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.

I've not seen this, which browser are you using? And have you cleaned out your cookies lately?
