I was recently reading a post that I found very interesting and would have liked to post my input on it, but it was locked because of the stupid "its a Dupe" posts.

Is it really necessary to cry dupe every time someone posts something that may have been posted before? I mean, its understandable if there is another current or recent thread that is a dupe, but who cares if someone is reposting something from 6 months ago or longer that a lot of us have yet not seen? Should we always have to start every post with " hope its not a dupe yada yada yada!?!?

I would think that it would take less effort to to just move on and go read something else then taking the time to write DUPE! Its not a Dupe for some people, because even though people like me try to get on here every day, many do not.

And even if somethings a dupe, if someone who has not seen it now comments or adds information, thats a good thing, right?

Those of us that have not seen something do not care whetehr or not you have seen it. If im reading something that I have not read before, its not a dupe to me!


This should be a sticky!

I agree. It's like having an irritating person following you around crying "Ring around the Collar!". Just deal with it.

I agree also. You can't have read every post.

I think something that would help in preventing concurrent dupe posts is if people, especially when posting current news articles/links, would put an accurate title on the OP. That way if someone comes on to post a current news flash, they could easily see that it's already been posted w/o having to read every current thread, especially ones with vague titles.

I don't mind the "dupe" - But they have to add the original thread link -

Oh, I see, Bundo was making a joke because his OP was an exact duplicate of someone else's. Still, that's plagiarism.

I think we're hard up for 2 amendment news.

A Dupe is a name (description of poster or person of interest in post or thread) not shortened term for duplicate ...:)

If it's a duplicate thread, a mod should shut it down with a link to the original. Simple.
