we need a message to pop up whenever someone post the same story or title on the forums. I see a lot of the same stories being covered.
That is spam, just report spam -- and I don't mean the canned meat type.
it's not spam..other members are posting the same stories as i am and vice versa ..I don't think it's intentional..
I can see how that can happen...inadvertently or deliberately.
With some forums, there are literally thousands of posts. Most of us do not have time to sit here combing through each and every prior posting to discover whether or not our current issue has been previously addressed. I know I don't.
So, if I sift back through 5 or 10 pages (depending on my available time at the moment, and there are still many more pages left), if I don't see at least a semi-related thread by that time, I am going to post as a new topic.
I'm sorry if that offends or troubles anyone, but it is just not realistic to try and read every single prior post on every forum category. We'd never get anything else done!

Recently I'm noticing new members who have no hubs, no activity where they read or comment on hubs, and only join to participate in self interest and/or bleeding heart questions in various forums. Sort of using HP as a...

I would like to know. I haven't decided which of my available articles here in my files to publish yet I want to gradually increase my Hubber score. Is it possible?

Paid forum posting is a business that's growing rapidly because of the glut of money in politics and the desire of commercial interests to promote their products and to blunt criticism.Should paid forum posters be...
