I think that when people are hitting Submit or Post New Topic, they come to an error page, so they hit back, and resubmit. Is this what is happening when people double-post?

thats what happened here. Sometimes with errors, posts dont go thru. Sometimes they do...hence the burst-like assault of double posts.

Just go Back, and Refresh the thread of forum index page in a new tab/window, before resubmitting or doing anything else. It really is that easy.

So go back, select the post, copy it to clipboard, check to see if it went through, and if it didn't, do it again and paste the post itself..

you fools. the errors are the result of your educated-stupid view of time. the time cube wreaks its revenge on the word-bastards by creating posts in four simultaneous 24-hr days!

This is what happens when you get a new server to prevent us from going back in time... you get a time parallax paradox flux error. Erm, yeah. Which means, double posting. :)
