    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..

      When people post the same stories to the forums, it's usually due to people not bothering to take a moment and see what other threads are current.

    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!
