You’ve just submitted a form. The process is going to be longer than… instantaneous.

Ever find yourself clicking more that once? The lazy programmer’s/designer’s way of dealing with that is to tell you not to click more than once. How well do you follow instructions?

Do not submit twice warning

They could have done a quick search to gray out the submit button [1]. Once they’re done with this, you can talk to them about using the word ‘submit’ on the button [2]. ;)
gray out save changes

Isn’t this better? Have any other examples you could share?
