On SO & MSO, the error message displayed when deleting two comments within 5 seconds used to be:

Can only delete a comment every 5 seconds.

It has now been replaced with the following error, which is not as descriptive (and incorrect):

An error occurred during voting

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add two comments
2. Delete both comments within 5 seconds
3. Bask in your error glory

Reproduced.

I've seen this as well. Annoying. Why is there a 5 second rule on comment deletion anyway? It's not like we can delete other people's comments anymore...

I believe that deleting a comment is equivalent to a "vote to delete" process. You can only vote once every 5 seconds, hence the 5-second limitation (and possibly the non-specific error).
