Default Removal of post time limit for Subscribers?

You know, the thing that makes us have to wait 21(who the hell came up with that time?) seconds between posts.

What does it really achieve anyways? I mean the only time it limits and annoys me is when I'm bumping my few for sale threads...

What do you guys think, eh?

It probably has something to do with taking it easy on the server.

It was meant to detract Spammers that got through, but they rarely get in. The Search time limit is the one that bugs me the most. It would be a nice Subscriber bonus to do away with them.

Unfortunately this is a global setting and cannot be easily assigned to user groups (i.e. subscribers)

At this time Vbulletin has no advice or work-around to make this happen. Their help desk did state they will log it as a feature request but could not give us a timeframe on when it may be implemented
