We are responsible for trying to promote our own territories with posts and we pay 100k sats to SN each month. One of the perks should be that we get to post for free in our own territories (with no 10x increase within 10 minutes too). Ain't nobody got time to wait 10 minutes when trying to bring engagement to their own territory, The owners aren't going to spam their own territories with pointless stuff, so we don't need to be rate limited.
I opened this as a feature request on the SN GitHub so please support this idea if you are in favor of it. https://github.com/stackernews/stacker.news/issues/787
