I have noticed here that there seem to be a lot of posts in threads that people make that say the exact same thing as someone before them, as though they never read past the initial post. I could understand this in a super-long thread, or two people posting the same thing at the same time, but this is not the case. I'm talking posts made one well after another, but often in a thread that only has 10 replies or so.
It makes me wonder if some people are browsing the forum in such a way that they aren't seeing the entire thread, like maybe on a PDA or their phone or something. Are there circumstances that people encounter where they only see the original post? It sure seems that way. I just don't understand when people repost the same, easy to understand information that has already been posted. Or when the original poster will answer someones question, only to have the same question asked again and again. Do people just ignore the entire thread?
