Default Posters who repeat other posters answers

Big bugaboo for me are those posters who will post almost exactly the same answer/reply as a previous poster who gave a very satisfactory answer. Are they just trying to get the most replies listed under their profile?

Run across this same kind of person in real life who will parrot your words just seconds after you've said them - in order to act as if they were the original creator of some clever statement.

Yeah and I get sick of those posters who will post almost exactly the same answer/reply as a previous poster who gave a very satisfactory answer. Are they just trying to get the most replies listed under their profile?

Don't you?

Why is it that what doctors do is called "practise"

they "practise" medicine,

...and "practise" law for that matter

hey....why can't bankers "practise" with your finances

banker

(why is your stock guy called a "broker")

One reason for the same answers appearing is because you can be typing your answer or comment at the same time someone else is and then lo and behold, both of your post show up at or about at the same time. This has happened to me several times and I feel like an idiot for repeating what the person in front of me has just said. Now if the post is obviously from a later time of day or even a day or two later I know what you mean,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it is annoying to read the same thing over and over.
