Interesting New Double Post Notification

Hi All,

I just came across this when posting to the forms:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

It looks like you already posted this comment. Please do not submit the same comment more than once.If you are sure this is not a duplicate comment, wait a few moments (:30 seconds or so) then resubmit. You are seeing this message because our backend systems think you're double-posting accidentally.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is the first time I have seen this message, and I think that this is a great idea. It seems that a lot of double posts happen accidentally, and this should reduce them.

Consider yourself lucky! LOL. It's harder than it may seem to prevent duplicate posts. Folks sure love the submit button! Funny.

Lots of people see this message, you have not. It's not 100% reliable (as we all see duplicate posts alot) but getting better.
