You mean in battle or outside battle? In battle you can activate your courser by holding down ctrl and then open the chat window by clicking on the icon next to it. You can also make it larger, this works for regular chat windows as for battle chat windows.

This happened to me once as well. I can't remember exactly but i think it had something to do with the computers time setting. I found out that Windows was not displaying the correct time and I sync it while in game. Then the time in chat and Windows was different and I could't type any more messages in chat.

I had it once while in battle. I couldn't use any chat but once I exited the battle it went back to normal.

That can be annoying when playing with someone who is not on TS or discord.

Just after i posted this my PC went Blue Screen Crash in the middle of a battle with 2 Frigates. 10 mins later i was back in the battle and the Chat was usable once more. Curious !!

It's the anti-spam filter. If you post too many messages within a certain time span, or try to post a short message (like lol) immediately after you posted another message or two of length, it will kick in. 

Yes, it also kicks in during the fall daylight savings time change (because your local time jumps back an hour and you've already posted messages during that same time according to the server), but this is not the normal reason.
