duplicate posts occur when a user clicks on the 'reply' or 'post quick reply' button more than once.
it takes a little longer these days for the server to process and display a reply presumably because more screening is required to defeat spammy posts ect.
so please be patient and allow just a little longer for your posts to process.
the moderator team is able to move duplicate posts to a 'dump', but sometimes that changes the way thumbnails of photos look ect. in the remaining posts.
many thanks everyone.
