Possible Duplicate:
Deleting a comment (mine) shouldn’t count as a comment vote

This is similar, yet different, to this post. That post explains a wrong error text, which seems fixed, but fixed it is with — again — a wrong error text. It is now:

You may only submit a comment vote every five seconds

when you delete two comments within five seconds. While it could be so much clearer with "You may only delete a comment every five seconds", or simply allow it (deleting a comment is unrelated to voting a comment and insensitive to abuse).

The message could definitely be improved. I don't think you'll find that @Jeff is amenable to removing it: http://www.codinghorror.com/blog/archives/001228.html

Could still be left in place, just with a text alteration. – TM. Dec 1 '09 at 13:41
Considering how much he hates comments, you would think he would want to make it easier to delete lots of them in a row.... – endolith Aug 23 '13 at 21:32
