When I search the forum the search functionality will be locked for 90 secs, thats way to high and wastes our time. 5 sec would be enough.

Same when you're logging in.. 45 sec timeout if you fail to login is too much. Should be like first 5 tries can be with 0-3 sec timeout and if 5th try fails, give that 1 minute timeout or so.

That limitation is there so people cannot crash/disrupt the database, as database calls are limited in this fashion.

I think there are enough accounts being hacked here already, thank you very much.

Heh. I think maybe it should be more intelligent to different kinds of failed login (failed password should be longer than failed username)..

yes i agree with this, 45 secs of logging in incorrectly is absolutely ridiculous. Who comes up with this shit?

When I tried searching, my first search had no results. My refined search also had no results.
Terms: "Bitcoin rank" "Wealthy Elite"

I ended up entering the (second) search string into Google appending "site:bitcointalk.org" to the end.

Somebody on the #bitcoin IRC chat commented:
Quote
<YouIsCat> Congratulations on feeding the beast.
<YouIsCat> Did you enjoy being wiretapped in the NSA terminal called "Google"?

Seen in that light, the non-working search is actually a security risk.

Edit: Obviously the timer was added after the search function was used to DDOS the forum. Perhaps making searches more "burstable" would help:
-You are allowed 1 search every 5 seconds -- logic fail?
-You are allowed 2 searches every 20 seconds
-You are allowed 3 searches every minute -- dupe
-You are allowed 4 searches every 5 minutes
