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

In this question, @Rosinante posted the comment almost at the very bottom:

Yea, but other throttles are relaxed based on rep

Is this true? Do the timers, etc. go away with higher rep? This would be nice.

FYI - the one that bugs me is the 5-second timer on comment up-votes. Often, when reading a post, clarification comments come in pairs and I'd like to have enough rep someday to avoid this limit. – M. Tibbits Jun 29 '11 at 6:05

I don't think the timers go away, I assume Rosinante had other features in mind.

Here is the list of privileges that can be gained with reputation

(I still have the 5 second timer on comment upvotes with more than 3000 rep on SO)

I'm definitely familiar with the rep page. I just had a suspicion that there were also unspoken/uncited privileges awarded. – M. Tibbits Jun 29 '11 at 6:35
@M. Tibbits I haven't got any unspoken/uncited privileges, yet (or at least I am not aware of). But maybe I had need just more rep for those ;). – stema Jun 29 '11 at 6:40
