Am I the only one

who ignores multiple posts? I've seen many posts that the topic interests me but see it posted many times in a few minutes. I just move on. Not sure if posters do it intentionally. But it seems a waste to me and kind of disrespectful. Someone enlighten me on why this keeps happening.

1. Some people post the same thing in multiple forums. Particularly if it's an article.

Like GD & then in a specialty forum like Energy & Environment. I've seen posts in three forums, too. GD gets more attention, but the specialty forums sometimes have a deeper discussion, with more comments & additional links. At least E&E is that way, although be warned, it is probably the most depressing forum on the site.

2. Sometimes great minds think alike and post something at the same time.

It's happened to me. I hit post and see one next to mine.

3. Vanity and/or laziness.

I remember on DU2 when there was a posting message about good members don't post dupes with a list of the last 10 posts posted (kind of like LBN is now).

I try to kick up the first post on the topic if I am aware. The people who are the worst offenders seem to be the ones who get the most comments.
