Smart Throttle

Smart Throttle plugin dynamically throttles comment flood.

How do you decide on the time out?

We use the rate of comments in the last hour. See bellow for a break down.

  • Upto 5 comments/h - 15s
  • From 6-14 comments/h 5s increment
  • Every comment/h there after 60s increment.

Can I change the time out?

Yes. Go to Settings -> Smart Throttle in wp-admin and change the time out. We believe our time out break down is well balanced ;)
