trying to post too often error
User Stephen Klein reports:
Got this message when trying to post via an email reply to the JITP private group:
“Hi there, Unfortunately, your reply to the forum topic could not be posted because it appears that you are trying to post too often. Please wait a few minutes and try again. We are sorry for the inconvenience, but you will need to repost the following message:”
But have not posted too much.

Sorry for missing this ticket!
RBE follows the bbPress setting "Throttle posting every X seconds". By default, this value is 10 seconds, so it is quite possible that Stephen is hitting the throttle limit.
We should probabaly set this to a higher value. 10 seconds seems a little too low. Boone, should we set this to 60 or 120 seconds? (I've bumped the value to 60 seconds for now.)
Or maybe RBE should not use this bbPress setting at all.

Oops! Yeah, you're right!
I've set this value to 0, which should disable the throttle.
I also just looked at the the throttle code in bbPress and for non-logged-in users, bbPress uses the last posted time from the user's IP address. The problem with this is RBE uses a fixed IP (127.0.0.1), so it's quite possible that conflicts will occur for RBE users. I'm going to look at disabling this feature within RBE as well.
