Four live posts on
the Park51 mosque. Two MetaTalk
posts (three now). This is getting ridiculous.
Suggestion: either introduce a separate "current events" area, or have a way of bouncing posts back up to the top if people are really interested in continuing to talk about it.

I think metatalk might have a problem with repeated entries.

Ooops, I did it again
. I made a comment and once again it resulted in an accidental triple comment, a product (I suspect) of some sort of clash between my work server and Metafilter's server. It's not the first time it's happened either
. And although all but one of my triple-comment will (hopefully) have been deleted by the time I finish writing this post (I have e-mailed an admin, as I usually do whenever it happens), it's getting annoying. Matt, I know you're really busy providing us with an awesome site, but could you please
institute some kind of delay of just a few seconds between the time that someone has posted a comment and the time that they can comment again? They have one over at Metafilter's twin, Devoter
, so surely it can't be that hard to do, can it? And best of all, it'll have plent of other benefits to the site (preventing abuse etc) and better yet, you, cortex and the ever suffering jessamyn will never have to get another e-mail from me asking you to delete two of my comments. Matt, please, can this be done?

My user page is borked. I've answered way more than zero things in ask.me. I've posted more than zero responses in the blue. I'm pretty sure I can't post in the blue, either, though this may not be a problem anymore - I just haven't had anything blueworthy recently. My account is pretty old, and it was stagnant for a while. Does that explain things?

I'm sick of double posting.
I want to stop double posting. How can I be sure, without manually searching the source codes of every month in the archives, that I'm not double posting? And is there any point in telling someone they've double posted when there's no way they can avoid it?

I just tried to post a link to this article: http://english.joins.com/Article.asp?aid=20011226014315&sid=300
, but I got this message instead.
The link you entered ( ) was found in 12676 previous threads.
This can't be possible, can it? Any ideas?

I was adding a comment to a thread
I started, and I previewed it once, added another line and previewed it again before posting. But it posted the message twice. The first being what was in the first preview and the second is what I wanted to post. The server had a slow reponse, and maybe that was a result or the cause of the error.

So when's that feature gonna come to negate repeat links? There've been two posts today -- last page on net, Simpsons bootlegs -- that have been reruns of things we've seen within the last month.
