You guys are great. :lol:

I just deleted a double post late last night, and another the day before, just to give you an idea of their frequency. Probably another today or tomorrow, if the law of averages is in effect.

Double posts are down since I made a change to the server a couple weeks ago that reduced latency when posting.

I think (know) double posts happen when it doesn't refresh in a second or so, and they click the submit button a second (or third, or fourth) time.

Ask me about the MVS 7-duplicate-email mailing list disaster in July 2016 sometime. Sometime in a few years. Not today. It's still to raw for me to talk about. It'll be a good laugh when I'm ready to tell the story.

Post editing window is 6400 minutes.

Post deleting window is 20 minutes.

... according to the master set of top-down rules. Those may be overridden by forum or user type permissions, but I don't think these values are.
