On the internet everyone knows you are a wedge of spite

Yes it is a double, but it is also good example of how one or two cranky farts can totally change the tone of a thread. [more inside]

Same link? No. Double post? Yes.

Isn't this a double post?

dA Double post callout

Forget the posting guidelines.
The flagging system empties straight into dev null.
Moderation is dead.
Anarchy prevails.

Acceptable to repost comments as FPPs?

Two things:

1) When is turning a comment into a FPP okay? The poster acknowledges it as such in the FPP itself and the old thread is still open for new comments. Shouldn't the new links be added to the old thread?

2) Also, pepsi blue.

"Double post" callouts

double post, double post...you missed something from 2001 I would hereby like to call a moretoreum on "double post" callouts in threads when the original link was more than, lets say, 18 months ago. Not everyone has been a member since the beginning, most people don't have the time to go back and read multiple years of archives, nor is it reasonable to expect that they would. The search is wonky, we all know that. [more inside]

Double-post callout double-post

When double-post callouts are ignored: a second post about game console price cuts (here's the first one), posting a link that that had been posted in the comments of the original thread. I pointed this out, but discussion continued anyway. Discussion is still going on in the first thread, and the general thrust of the discussion in each thread is absolutely identical (price cuts, comparisons of consoles, buying advice). What, was I too polite?

Were the end of this thread a football match, yellow cards woudl be shown. Were it an ice hockey game, there'd be penalties. Within MetaFilter, it's really not on.
