Some low-rep users cannot post anywhere

While I was at Starbucks earlier today, I tried answering a few questions and asking a few questions, but the Stack Overflow system would not let me do it. I kept getting the "You can't post more than once in three minutes" error, or the "You can't ask more than one question in 20 minutes" error. When I went home, everything worked fine.

Any ideas?

The coffee nazis are probably sniggering into their double decaf skinny chai lattes about this one :) – slugster Aug 22 '10 at 3:12
It was a bug that was fixed earlier today. I had the same thing, nothing to do with Starbucks: scorcho.tumblr.com/post/988192497/so-issue – Grant Aug 22 '10 at 5:33

You probably ran into this bug.

Or, less likely, someone from starbucks already posted a question/answer. It's IP based, not account based.

Ah, public hotspots and large networks. The only issue with IP based systems – TheLQ Aug 22 '10 at 3:24
