Hey, just a general question. Why is there a limit to how many searches you can do for new threads? I'm talking about the "new posts" button, you have to wait 30 seconds. Just interested if there are any reasons behin that.

All searches (including the New Posts button) require CPU resources on the server. We don't want the server to get overloaded and slow down, so we limit the number of searches per user per unit time.
