Very poor performance when saving new post if there are many unpublished posts


After clicking on save in a new post page the errors in the screenshot are shown. Error per unpublished post.

My app requires thousands of unpublished posts and even more in the future i.e posts that will remain in draft status forever so each click on save in a new post will generate 1 error for each post which is unacceptable performance wise. The post is saved correctly.

If I delete the posts branch from the repo there are no errors.

To reproduce the issue, enter my staging environment, you can click on save without filling the form and you will see the errors in the console.
