Why so many duplicate forum entries?

    Question

  • I've begun working with the forums again after a long absence (at the newsgroups). I've noticed that on virtually every thread some answers are posted twice. Folks, this kind of sloppy data management just makes using the forums that much tougher.

  • Not seeing that in the groups I peruse unless someone actually posted the same thing twice which isn't often.

  • Except if a reply is marked as answer then it gets duplicated assumedly to make it easier to find.

    You can change that in your settings...   E.g. uncheck  "Always Show Answers First On Thread Page."
