Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
