Re: [RC] Minor Request (was: Sorry for the dupe...) - Barbara McCrary

I think courtesy is deeply ingrained in most of us; therefore it is instinctive to apologize for an error.

Sorry gang. Didn't mean to say the same
thing twice, I thought the earlier post didn't go through.

This reminds me of something that I think of every time I see something like this...


My preference, when people make the mistake of accidentally sending something multiple times...for whatever reason, would be for them not to send an additional post apologizing for it/explaining it; thereby just adding even more to the traffic.

Personally, I consider it safe to assume that all duplicate posts are unintentional and that there is no reason to add to the "too many posts" problem by adding another one.

Am I the only one who feels this way, or can we safely say that it is absolutely okay for anybody who accidentally sends multiples of the same post to just leave it at that. And that "sorry for the dupe" posts should only be sent if the explanation for the dupe is some kind of contagious virus that people need to be warned about.

If they are sent because "oops I goofed," then that is just one more post that needs to be deleted or ignored.
