Please let the last message a user sent in the chatterbox time out?

Hello. Today I went into the chatterbox to say "Hello". My simple "Hello" did not appear. I went to CBstream and found the last message I sent before this "Hello" was another "Hello". I think I sent it a few days ago. While I can see the wisdom behind not allowing repeated messages in the CB, would you please consider putting a time out of something like half a day or a day? Sometimes I don't want to freshen the cookies on the sideboard (and even if I did, I can't do it twice in a row).

Thank you.

No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

    Didn't you see a message like

    Whoa, Cowboy! You said that already. Don't 'reload'?

    ?

    In these cases I simply replace "hello" with "hi" and after some minutes I can "hello" again :)

      LanX, I say "hello" then go off to do other things before the "hello" even gets into the chatterbox (lag). I check back a few minutes later to see if anyone said "hello" back. I'm thinking more for the people who tend to stop by the chatterbox every few weeks or so and may not remember what they said last.

    What priority would you assign to such an enhancement-request?   Very painful, causes me to wince, or just nice-to-have?

      sundialsvc4 , somewhere in the middle more toward nice to have.
