I will often look over the body of comments to a question or answer and sometimes I'll find 2 or 3 that deserve to be highlighted. Invariably I'll try to click on the second one before 5 seconds are up. I understand that we want to discourage people from upvoting every single comment, but can we stop the hand-holding once you've proved you know how to use the site?

The other problem with giving unlimited votes is every time you click the "up arrow" it sends a request to the server. If everyone clicks 5 comments in less than 5 seconds.. That's a lot of requests. Just sayin. –  ɥʇǝS Apr 16 '13 at 16:30
I agree, but 5 seconds isn't that bad... even with my habit of looking over most comments before thinking on voting on them. –  vonbrand Apr 16 '13 at 17:04
@Seth Isn't the question just about the enforced time span between votes, and not the number of votes ("unlimited votes")? –  A.M. Jun 17 '13 at 16:15
@A.M. When it comes to comments that's pretty much the same thing. By "unlimited votes" I just meant no time limit. –  ɥʇǝS Jun 17 '13 at 16:59
