[Facebook] Missing rate limit in comments

On Facebook Developers site, a bug report had a comment section with missing rate limit. Any User with a Facebook ID can comment on it.

Rate limit evaluation -

I was able to send 30001 repeated payloads with Burp Thread set to 100 without getting blocked. The 30001th payload was sent successfully with a comment and "200 OK" status with response saying "success=True" in a minute.

This could have been done to the comment replies as well.

Make a comment and catch the request with Burp Interceptor and take the request to Intruder.

Use NULL PAYLOADS as attack vector and Repeat the requests.
