  • And 15 seconds per comment isn't too bad - that's still 240 comments an hour. – Adam Davis Feb 12 '10 at 20:55
  • Plus, if it takes you less than 15 seconds to write and proof read your comment, it may well not be worth posting. – Adam Davis Feb 12 '10 at 20:56

    As humorous as this is, if there was a thread that needed the 1-click comment killer, this is probably officially it. :) (Sorry @Pollyanna ... ) – John Rudy Feb 12 '10 at 21:39
