I get an error in the chat when the flood control kicks in:

js chat error

Browsers: Chrome stable and canary.

That's not really a JavaScript error; that's just Chrome saying that the AJAX request returned a 409 Conflict. That's the status code for the flood control failure, so this is absolutely correct.

Maybe I should just stop flooding then ;) – PeeHaa Mar 5 '12 at 20:19
Why 409 and not 429? Hmm seems like the lack of time machine is responsible. Chat is older than the code... – CodesInChaos Mar 5 '12 at 20:25
@CodeInChaos 429? Isn't that still a draft?? – PeeHaa Mar 5 '12 at 20:26
