I made a short comment direct link? ? and it turned out that it wasn't long enough (although the character counter was happy with it), then added a few more characters to make it happy and then I got a message saying only 1 comment allowed every 15 seconds.
This, although the comment 5 seconds ago wasn't actually accepted.

This is an annoying bug.

It's not a bug, it's by design.

Annoying as it is, it's intended


If you game the comment length indicator, it will game you.
