I am having trouble with sharing posts with friends or posting on my timeline. After about 5 or 6 'shares', I get the message,

slow down, you are going too fast or your are using this feature for which it was not intended?

I don't understand this because I don't go fast when posting. I have never been accused of going too fast.

There must be a bug in the system because after an hour or so, I am able to re-post after it tells me that I am blocked from sharing posts for two days. The next day I try to post again, and it allows me to share? Why does it give me this message if I am not truly blocked for two days.

This doesn't make any sense. I have never had this happen to me before. I am not using/sharing posts in a way that was not intended. If posts are sent out with permission to 'share' then why do I receive this strange message?

I am not able to use Facebook as before, and there are some very lovely posts that I would like to share with friends or just put on my timeline.

Have you tried contacting Facebook? They could have flagged you in some way that makes you more prone to spam detection. – Allan Kimmer Jensen Jan 14 '13 at 7:43
