Is anyone else having problems when posting to the forums?  Almost every time I post or edit a post, it comes out a double post.

I wonder why this is happening?    Any suggestions on why and how to keep it from happening?

Sometimes it happens when someone else posts at the very same time. The most common reason it happens is someone not thinking their post submitted and they hit the Submit Reply button more than once while the system is processing and their response gets submitted twice.

Double-clicking on the "submit reply" button can also cause this, or posting during a server hiccup.  I've been getting duplicate Live Help requests today -- one came through 8 times -- so I'm guessing the server is experiencing myoclonic jerks -- hiccups. :-)

I never double click on the submit button so I guess it has to be the server.  I just saw some double posts on Swapadvd, so guess they are having problems, also.
