    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'm "Letting them know" every time it happens in the hope everyone else is and they'll get hacked off and sort it!

    Not had any reply, tho' :/

    Interestingly people seem to be able to comment in groups (I can) and on friends walls (haven't tried that) but not on business pages.

    Still blocked and no replies to my appeals.

    I also seemed to be suffering from this. I really hope this is not a permenant thing as they do this on instagram if you like too many photos or follow to many people its a spamming sort of thing - its super annoying and takes a couple day to get your account active again. However if they are doing that we might have to face the fact that this is here to stay and must be a new feature. Although you can appeal against it if you read they will rarely respond to individuals its so they can see what they can do better overall. . Think I may have to skip the advents for this one!!!
    Thanks to everyone's hard work in posting comps, and good luck to all

    OMG, Mr GB has just been banned for trying to post on a comp page and he's the slowest typer I know. He doesn't do many comps either.
    I think it could be something to do with businesses as all group comments and on friends' posts have been fine.

    It would help if people knew how long they are blocked for. They used to at least tell you that.

    I've had no probs today, but I'm holding my breath for when I get caught. Although my FB page is mostly about family and friends, a couple of comps a day. Some days more than others, as it happens it's been a quiet time for FB comps.

    I hardly share comps; maybe 1 a week at most.
    I've messaged them about 6 times now and still no response.

    I also have it. I don't enter that much but did enter a fair few on Wednesday and then Thursday morning as soon as I tried to comment it came up with the error! I reported it as a mistake but was pretty annoyed to see they do not review each case and that basically our comments will Just be used to try and help THEM in the future....

    I freaked out. If I am typing to fast now I dread to think what they wiill think when the Advents start. Hoping this is a glitch with so many of us having it I wouldn't of minded so much if I had been OTT entering like mad but I really haven't. I wondered if maybe it was due to trying to clamp down on companies using like and share as an entry method and the fact we had entered it when they classed it as spam it told us all off for being associated with it.

    Yep I'm still blocked too. I can comment on selling groups posts, friends posts just not business pages. So frustrating. Yes would be helpful to know how long the ban is for. At least we know we aren't alone ��
