how to blogIf you enter blog giveaways, there is no doubt that you’ve seen this error message multiple times on other blogs (but not my blogs!):

You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down.

This error message makes me angry. Angry as a person who enters blog giveaways and angry as a blogger. If you’re a blogger who uses WordPress, I beg you to incorporate this super easy fix.

To remove the You are posting comments too quickly. Slow down. error message, simply install and activate the WordPress plugin called Disable Check Comment Flood. That’s it. No settings to change, nothing to update.

No more errors, no more angry face.

    I’m not a blogger, but I’ve gotten that message. I thought most bloggers censor the comments anyways.So I never understood it.

    Thank you! I’m moving to WordPress and this is one of the first plug-ins I wanted to install. It’s a huge pet peeve of mine when entering giveaways at WP blogs.

      You are more than welcome to link this post to them. In fact, I would LOVE that! :) The more we can get the word spread, the better!

    OMG I feel your pain. I hate to think of the hours I waste waiting to post comments to peoples’ blogs to enter giveaways. Sometimes I just leave after a few entries!

    • Jenny says:

      Exactly! When I make the first entry, then the second, and get the annoying error, I just hit the back button to post the second one again and then leave. Otherwise it takes forever!

    Thanks for letting us know about this, I just hauled ball through your giveaways! And I passed it on to my blogger friend.

    • Jenny says:

      Thanks Sunnie! I actually posted this because I was entering someone else’s giveaway and was sick of hitting the back button and retrying. LoL :)

    You’re welcome ladies! And please spread the word. Maybe we can get rid of this nasty little error message one blog at a time. :)

    I enter other blogs’ giveaways and it drives me crazy!

    That would make a lot of people very happy, I am sure.

    Thank you so much. I do not have wordpress, but have experienced exactly what you are talking about. Hopefully others will read this and can make the changes. Have a great bloggy day.
