    I've noticed that there seems to be a rash of double and triple posts lately of the same post. Heck, there was one reply that I removed that posted 8 duplicate posts.
    Anything you know of that could be causing this?

    happened to me a couple days ago....once again the problems with the system seem always to happen between 5am and 7am.
    It was a looooong post so I hit enter more than once because I didnt want to retype it as the server seemed to be hung up.

    Can you please point me to a specific thread if that happens again so that I can investigate this further?

    The server load is very low from 5 to 7 AM and it should be responding pretty fast. The only exception might be around 6-6:05 where the daily remote backup is performed, as part of the server's internet connection is used to backup data instead of receiving new information, but the connection should not be slower much more than a few seconds since only the new data is backed up (we're talking of less than 10MB per day usually).

    It happen to me over and over for a few days.
    I got website not responding after it seemed to take forever to send. Then I clicked back to the main and got that it had expired. So I resent and resent lol Cause this kept repeating itself and never saying that it posted the reply. Turns out sometimes it did and sometimes it didnt. When it did it was a delayed posting. Sometime so delayed it didnt show up when you pressed the refresh button

    look in the commercial landscaping at the post think it is called "why we do the jobs we do" or something or other. LandscapeEscape posted one whole page of the same replies. LOL.

    On another post a guy replied three times so i agreed with him 3 times. I think that was in the "West coast biasism" started by yours truely. Hope this helps yall track the problem.

    Oh, and in case it matters, for every re-peat post it also sends Re-peat notices to you that you got a NEW reply. I came back from dinner and had like 12 responses which boiled down to 2. Darn, i was so excited too.

    I just turned off e-mail notification. I got no less than 50 emails relating to one post. Something isn't right. Usually, it only sends one per thread.

    In at least 9 of 10 threads ive looked at, the last few have been either double or tripple posts. I can find you links if you want, but as i said, its in just about every thread.
