    Typing too fast on facebook???? 13th Oct 16 at 6:57 AM
    Got up an went on facebook. Entered a quick little comment comp - or tried to - only to be told I was blocked for using the feature too fast. On my FIRST comment of the day. Filled in the little thingy that you get if you want to appeal. 10 minutes later it seemed to have cleared, only for me to get it again on the next comment I tried. This time I just ignored it and tried again but just typed slowly and my comment was accepted. Can FB actually tell how fast we type? Am I being silly there lol?

    Lately it feels like every blooming site is conspiring to slow down my comping pah.

    And I just tried another comment and got blocked again. It really doesn't like me this morning.

    i have also been blocked from typing any comments on fb this morning so maybe its not us and maybe an error on fb?
    i certainly dont enter many on there anyway, i thought it may have been because i entered a fewyesterday but happy to see others are having the same issue this morning

    I'm guessing it's because automated bots can type very fast and they're trying to cut down on spam comments left across the whole site.

    For me, I've an old PC, I have to wait about a minute before I can type anything on FB.

    Yeah mine is that my comment is deemed abusive hahaha not sure how liked and shared could be abusive. I dont even get the option to appeal either. Lets hope they sort it out soon, theres lots of comps us guys are missing out on!

    Same here first thing this morning. Someone tagged me in a comp so I went to enter it myself and it wouldn't let me post a comment. Very annoying!

    I didn't get told of for typing too fast but I did get told my posts were abusive and I was banned. Its been lifted now but someone else has said they got banned again right after it being lifted so who knows!

    Guess we won't be winning much on Facebook today...
    GOAL - win 72 prizes in 2016.
    SO FAR - 29!

    how strange i havent even recieved an email to say why. I wonder if we all might have entered a particular comp yesterday and had this happen because of that?

    exactly, which one haha! Well hopefully the ban wont be for too long for most of us. I have never been banned before, but just attempted to post on my laptop rather than my phone and it said about typing too fast. Hopefully will be lifted tomorrow, but all those prizes we are missing out on
