  • Not easily. But if the problem was caused by a bug, we could fix it. We'll have to try to figure out the condition around this happening. I'll log a bug. Thanks

  • how about saving the previous post in the session and deny a subsequent submission if the post content is identical? I understand it would use a lot of memory on the server...

    The following is signature, not part of post

  • It would be sufficient to check the timestamp and the submitter. The duplicates and triplicates have the same timestamp.

    This would only get rid of system-made duplicates.

    I often get

    1. the same post sent to different forums

    2. the same post sent several times to the same forum but with time intervals of anything up to an hour (more typically a few minutes)

    2. is usually blamed on IE rather than the user of it and these days there's also an attack on me as a Microsoft employee (I'm not!) for producing such bad software.

    So sojnálom but your suggestion isn't going to help with the most common cases.

    Both also have links to extensive book lists and to (free) on-line chapters

  • Mike,

    My suggestion addressed only somekind of automatic echo created duplicates and triplicates like in this thread:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/databasedesign/thread/adc7c0dc-3770-488f-b47a-8d856dab1429

    It keeps happening again and again for this MVP.

  • The dups happened to me also. I post from IE9/Windows 7. No special software, just the forum editor.

    Wonder if it is faulty mouse?
