A few minutes ago I set up a poll on Meta.Mathematica using multiple answers as vote options.

I ran into this rate limiter:

I do not see the point of limiting community moderators in this way given that they are trusted with far greater responsibilities, so I am requesting that the rate limit be removed or at least greatly reduced.

The only issue I can conceive is if a moderator account is compromised it could be used to spam rapidly, but if a moderator account is compromised this is surely not the biggest problem, and there could still be a higher rate limit to handle this one contingency.

A reduced moderator rate limit has already been implemented for comments; see:

Lift or reduce the comment rate-limiting timer for moderators
