Search cooldown on forum too high

"At least 30 seconds have to pass between searches. Please wait 27 seconds and try searching again."

There shouldn't be any cooldown for few first searches in a row.  E.g. I want to add link to relevant post, but don't remember the exact phrase - now I just give up, as it takes way to much time to find.

Why is there a limit at all for searching?

Bots/denial-of-service attacks.

Re: Search cooldown on forum too high

Now that we have a New Users category for unknown people (who haven't made 10 posts yet), the bot flood concern is minimal.

Members now have a 1-second cooldown between searches instead of 30, while New Users still have 30.
