You can only post once every 40 minutes.

I got this response from bitcoin forum while trying to ask a question, strangely I had not asked anything in last 40 minutes, In fact, that was my first question in the forum. I assumed someone from my IP, Perhaps my office might have asked a question in the same period. As I checked the newest questions in the forum there had been only one question for 40 minutes, It was by a user who has not revealed his identity. But now I have a clue about his IP and I went through the questions from his other SO profiles. Apparently, he is from my office. I did not try further to establish this fact. However, is this not a privacy breach?

  • Was this other post also on Bitcoin SE, or did he post on another site on StackExchange? In other words, is this a per-site ratelimit, or a ratelimit across the entire StackExchange network? – Nick ODell Jun 19 '17 at 19:40
  • Other post was on Bitcoin SE. – Codeformer Jun 19 '17 at 21:40

  • This should probably be migrated to meta.se. – DavidPostill Jun 23 '17 at 14:43
  • @DavidPostill Agree , asked the question there - meta.stackexchange.com/questions/297568/… – Codeformer Jun 24 '17 at 4:53
  • I'm voting to close this question as it has been asked on meta.stackexchange.com instead. – Murch Jun 26 '17 at 2:28
