    Cool [SUGGESTION] Put a time limit on how many times you can post in a chat room

    This has been an issue since the cosmetic store was released. People copy their group of text and paste it and spam the chat room 3-6 times in quick succession. I'm sure you have seen something like this in chat:

    Coolguy: Dude just got out of a game where wrecked with nature's prophet
    JakirO' Neil: Sweet man.
    XxMAJOR McPUBLORDxX: [H] LONG LIST OF STUFF THAT IS EITHER REALLY BAD OR OUT OF YOUR REACH TO PAY FOR [W] SOMETHING COMPLETELY UNREASONABLE FOR WHAT I AM OFFERING.

    Coolguy: STFU
    JakirO' Neil: FFS ANYBODY REMEMBER BEFORE THE SHOP HAPPENED THERE WOULD BE ACTUAL DISCUSSION
    Mid or Feed: SWAP COMMENS 4X4. LIKE ME THEN SEND FRIEND REQUEST AND I LIKE YOU.
    Mid or Feed: SWAP COMMENS 4X4. LIKE ME THEN SEND FRIEND REQUEST AND I LIKE YOU.

    Coolguy: OMG


    What I am suggesting is Valve put a limit on how many times you can post in an amount of time in a chat room. Maybe only 3 times in a second? If a user posts more than that, they will be muted temporarily with a message saying something along the lines of "Calm down! You have been muted for 15 seconds for spamming." The cool down time could be higher or lower, depending on what Valve thinks is best.


    This would help clean up a lot of the commendation begging spam as well as the trade spam.

    Edit: Here is an example of how bad it has gotten:

    Or make a channel that is easy to join for everyone (or join by default) that has only trade chat, I mean, a chat in slow-down time, like some chats on twitch.tv when you only can post one thing every minute or every 30s, that would be great

    I mean... seriously guys, do you not report them for abusing the textchat?!

    edit: being in a regional chatroom that is, i dont care about trading chatrooms.
