Is it intended that the "Add To Cart" button be spammable? (UX)

Hello, first time poster. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I noticed the "Add To Cart" button action doesn't prevent accidental clicks. That is, I can rapid fire the button and it will add a bunch of quantity to my cart despite the button UX reflecting that only one item is being added. Usually these kinds of buttons would be deactivated when they are processing, and reactivated once the process is done, to prevent accidental clicks and unhappy customers from discovering they had more in their cart than intended. Is the current behavior intentional or a bug?

I've never tried spamming the ATC button so I can't speak to that or SS's design decisions.

I can say that the cart and checkout pages provide an opportunity to correct an incorrect quantity amount. So it's not like one is stuck with an undesired quantity amount.

Also the ATC button does provide status information to the user as to the state of the button. Adding... Added...

If you think this is going to be a common problem for you some custom code might be created to help reduce the issue.
