Slow down comment posting, cowboy?

I was trying to test the “Subscribe to Comments 2.1” plugin I just installed — because K2 has built-in support for it — and I’m getting a lame error that shouldn’t be happening.

So, I’m logged out. I make a quick comment, using my non-blog email address, then subscribe to comments. Then, after waiting a minute, I change the comment user to a bogus email address, then try again.

“Sorry, you can only post a new comment once every 15 seconds. Slow down cowboy.”

This thread at WordPress Support doesn’t seem to have been addressed by any developers. Any suggestions?
