I've chosen a question out of the list that was given and reset it. I couldn't find the question that was there previously. I do, however, suspect that the unicorns ate it because somebody denied them their delicious daisies.

This rate limit applies to users with less than 125 reputation, and all posts made by anyone from the same IP address on any Stack Overflow or Stack Exchange site count toward the limit, even if they are made by accounts with more than 125 reputation.

There is nothing that anyone here on ServerFault can do about this*. The 6-character minimum is part of the software used across all SE sites and is unlikely to be changed. Looking on meta.SE (where issues that affect all SE sites are raised), I see that it has been suggested to remove the limit for text inside code blocks: Is it a good idea to either drop ...

According to Shog9: That was a last-minute bug fix. See, while meta let you enter a custom reason, it didn't actually do anything with that reason. This isn't ideal. So it was fixed before the network-wide rollout, and should disappear from Meta as well soon. Folks who can vote to close directly still have the option, and it creates a comment along ...
