Alex,

Doing the MD5 of the message + a check by the username would the best approach. To eliminate the flooding, you would really only need to limit the session to about 60-90 seconds.

The chances of two messages having the same MD5 hash is about 10000000000000000000000000 : 1 - so it is definately a better idea then checking against the entire message.

That way no one user can post the same message within the alloted time frame.
Cheers,
Michael Bray
