I noticed some people are double posting yesterday and today.  It seems to at least a dozen people and happening at random. 

If you are having this trouble, can you describe what you are doing when it happens? When did you first notice this happening?  Has it happened to you more than once?

I've been having it happen fairly regularly when I quick reply on my phone.  I just thought I must be hitting the submit button a second time after it already started to load.  Of course,  I did just minimize a double post from yesterday that I was sure didn't double at the time.

I had it happen last night when I posted from a normal reply (not a quick reply) in Opera, on a Windows desktop computer, with satellite internet. I pushed the submit button once, and the time stamp shows both postings were submitted the exact same second.

I always use regular view.   I can't do everything in mobile.

If we can find some way to reproduce the error - or find a common element between the different times it happens, then we can send the information to the wonderful people who fix things.

I had a double posting on June 11th at around 7pm.  I don't recall this happening to me before.  I did not do anything different than normal that I know of.  If I do see a pattern in my behavior related to another double post, I'll post here about it.
