Clicking once does not have anything to do with posts repeating themelves - it does it all by itself. I only click once and it has been repeating my posts two or three times ever since they started this upgrade or adding enhancements or whatever you want to call it.

I just wish that they could fix this as some posts are long enough without adding multiple posts of the same thing. I also try and go back and delete my multiple posts - some times I can and other times I can not. If someone posts after you - you are out of luck.

Try posting this under the Technical forum and it will be read by the right people to fix it (or atleast make them aware of it).

This has already been addressed a number of times in the Tech section. A workable work-around is to count to 10 or 15 after hitting submit and then click the Red-X "Stop" button at the top. I watch my green progress bar at the bottom of my screen and when it hits 4 bars, I exit out of the screen. This has stopped duplicate postings for me.

9 times out of 10, if you just hit submit and let the screen clear itself, your post will appear 3 or 4 times. The writer of the post is not doing anything to make it duplicate. It just is.

I agree with gm...I think a large part of the burps are due to the lengthy submit are not quite sure if you have been "beamed up" so you click again, just to be sure. As for you ID... your posts are just so darn helpful...the computer wants to be sure everyone gets the info! LOL!
