mvp - no there's no post counts on the forum... I think that practice is pretty lame any way.

Repeat posts could be crossed, that is as I write this you have no replies but there may be one or two once I hit submit. Those that submit answers after the green tick has been applied will help anyone else perhaps searching the archive.

Happened to me Last night, Just after a Badge, I think.

Just Laugh it off, I do.

is that different people are looking at the same thread at the same time. One types a response and posts it to the thread. Another person is typing his/her response when the phone rings, or the supper is ready, or there's a ring at the door. Minutes, or maybe an hour later the second person returns to the screen, which still looks as it did, finishes the response, and posts it - only to see that someone else had previously posted the same answer.

It happens quite often, and to me - I have three screens open on the forum at any one time, and I'm often responding to two or more threads more or less at the same time. Sometimes I have a thread open for ten minutes or so before finally posting to it - to see someone else has said the same as me.

I'm sure that's the explanation - I don't think anyone here is 'on a mission' as you put it.

It just happened with me and belfman.

I know which thread you are referring to as I took part in it.

My opinion, for what it is worth, is that you have over-reacted to what happened.

Your advice, once again in my opinion, was difficult to understand and all that happened was that another contributor provided an easier to understand solution, which he explained to you when you raised the issue.

Can you link to it please.

Also when there is a topic with more than one page loads of us (including myself)don't spot that there is more than 1 page....

Yes, that's another common problem worth mentioning.
