Default 300 second wait time for PMs?

A 5 minute wait time to send a PM is quite a bit long. We get 30 seconds of downtime between post but why so much for PMs? Just curious...

You are correct, it's in place to keep spammer's at bay.

I could see maybe 2 and a half minutes, but 5 minutes is just too long.

agreed with Arrizx. Though I rarely get/send pm's, if I have to wait to send one it feels kinda stupid. I understand that there has to be some limit to stop people from spamming by pm, but 5 mins is just way too long.

Wow. The more I read about this site, the more I find out how restrictive it is.
