- Restrictions have been placed on searching the Friends database to reduce the risk of third parties gathering large numbers of e-mail addresses for the purpose of sending unsolicited commercial e-mail. You will be able to run 10 searches, each of which returns 10 answers, in a given 30 minute period. After that, you will be required to wait 30 minutes before you run another search. Recent incidents in which companies selling diabetes-related products have sent commercial e-mail messages to people in the Friends database have made this restriction an unfortunate necessity.
