I have no problem with the 10 minute time and I noticed it was in effect yesterday. Most boards have a timer and I've been surprised this one did not.
I'll just have to start wearing my glasses and looking at the screen while I type. Oh, and proof it before I post. The auto-correct/spelling makes changes I don't notice. Actually, that could be a good excuse to use when I offer really bad advice to an unsuspecting poster.
