    - This could be the symptom that there is something that needs to be reset.

    - Others could be similarly effected.

    - Or, this could be some devious moderator using this a subtle hint to either respond to my posts faster, or spend the rest of my days clearing duplicated entries.

    - Or, I suppose some people could see it as an advantage. It is in a way. I can see how many replies and who they are from. If it's only me, that would sort of give me a little inside information. Yeah! If it's just me don't worry about it, I like being connected. Your call!

    I don't see anything generally wrong, so I'll need specific details in order to look into this. If you can gather details of which topics, what posts and all that, and send it to me I'll look into it.

    Hi LWM-

    Actually, I have a meta theory of what is going on and it is on my end. The symptom does not bother me anyways. My concern was it may be hard on your servers if you are sending large numbers of extra replys. I don't even know if that is an issue. Since I didn't know I thought it best let you know. I'm sure if it's a problem others will let you know.

    P.S. I'm lying, let's face it, no one would notice! :)

    Are you working with an email-account with several email-aliasses?

    No, but I am working on a computer with many personalities.


    I think I know what's happening, and it's not a problem. I would have thought it through before posting, but I believe in "early warning" in case someone more all-knowing than myself needs to throw a lightning bolt or two!
