    Please eliminate the waiting time between reporting threads. I'm reporting the more and more frequent spam threads and it is annoying to wait half a minute between them. I'm seriously thinking to not to report them anymore because it is a major inconvenience.

    Hey!

    I'll have a chat internally today about this. It may be that the waiting time is there to prevent spam reports/potential abuse, but let me get back to you on that :)

    Hey again,

    I've had a look around and it appears that it's totally hard locked at 30 seconds to prevent spam/abuse. There's nothing I can change on this I'm afraid :( I thank you for your feedback/suggestion though <3

    That's a shame. But thank you for trying.

    Is this a hard locked in the software, or in the dev team?

    Because when I see three threads that all have spam bots as the latest reply, I'll for sure report one of them. I'm not going to wait 1.5 minutes so I get to report all of them. So this is a bit of a problem.

    Ideally this would be handled by post count and account age. If age is older than X and have made some posts, they're probably not a bot and would probably not absue the button.
