"too similar" error message

Today in weird error messages, I was replying to questionnaire PMs giving people the heads-up they were all set to claim for the Ongoing ATC swap, and got a message saying something along the lines of “this is too similar to what you just posted,” which would not let me send the message without rephrasing it.

This makes perfect sense as a feature for replying to posts, but if there’s an easy way to disable it for messages sent to different individuals, that would be nice.

Thanks!

I have received that messages but I just close the box and still can send it…I also get the one that says I replied three times in one post, so shut up and let others reply… :laughing:

I find it funny how often I am apparently just like a bot! [beep boop]

Let me see if I can tweak it a bit for us. It’s a security feature, so a spammer doesn’t try to send naughty messages to a large group of members quickly. I’ll see if I can bump it up to a higher trust level!

In my head, I reply with incomplete sentences to that one. :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: :joy:

Yeah, I tried just closing the error message, but it just came back-- perhaps the code is getting smarter?

I did get the “have you considered making these all one post?” one when I did the third post for beginning the ATC swap, but then it let me consider not doing it, too, so that was fine. :laughing:

Thanks for looking into it!
