Will fluther forgive those of us who have posted duplicate responses?

Asked by hungryhungryhortence (12163points) June 6th, 2009

I just now realized after a few hours of being on site that even though an error message says to submit my response again, it will post the first time if I wait a teeny bit.

I have been going back and editing th first one with a “sorry”

I don’t really mind it’s just a mistake, and it’s kinda obvious to know what happened and I’m sure all the other flutherites will feel the same way

I have been using copy and paste. Write, copy, post, and refresh to see if it made it.

I can think of a few people that are going to be having a bad day today.

It appears that problem was recently corrected

I looked for some sort of delete feature to clean up

You are forgiven.

[Edit] Well, it’s being cleaned up with a vengeance now. I tried to post “You are forgiven” eight times as a joke, and each post after the first deleted itself.

You will NEVER be forgiven. You will be BANNED.~

What kind of jerk wouldn’t forgive multi-posters for a technical glitch that wasn’t their fault? That would be so mean.

@Jeruba: yay! I had previously seen some remarks made to people griping at them for multiple replies, assuming it had been done intentionally.

I have been using the same method as @johnpowell and recommend it to the rest too.

As soon as I realized they were posting I was cautious to only hit “answer” once and believe they would post despite the red warning.

Forgiveness? I hope so!

I think so.

“I think so.”

Just go back and flag it and they will eventually remove the duplicate. They can’t find everyone of them without our help.
