I was wondering if there was a purpose to the "flood control" message that comes up when you try searching something within 20 seconds of something else. I get a little annoyed sometimes when I am trying to search for something, because if there are not results, I revise the word I put into the search engine. However, I must wait before I can hit "search" again!

Just wondering if it is necessary or not to have "flood control"

Hi Beth,

I've never had this come up during a search. My best guess would be that it's part of our software, so yes it's needed. Sorry for the aggravatiion this is causing you. All I can suggest is waiting longer between searches.

Take care,
