One of the things I've noted when I post a new topic on TMP is that it frequently makes several copies of my post.

I have noticed however that it might be the posters doing.

When you post a new topic there is often a very long wait till the crossposting screen comes up. This can be so long that I sometimes think I have not hit the "Submit new Topic" button. I then hit it again and It makes a "duplicate message" SOMETMES and may loop back into the wait.

What I have found is if I make sure I hit the "Submit New Topic" button once and am sure I did it, and wait, even if it's up to half an hour, it will usually produce one message.

I have no idea why it would post messages to other boards.

OK, let's try.

Gee, someone is actually trying to help Bill with the issue instead of just whining about it. I'm not sure if that is a violation of the TMP oath or not.

But, a word of warning, do-gooders will be severly dealt with.

I think you are actually on to something there.

If I comment too much I might catch the bug.

Be patient.

All my postings are cross; I'm a grumpy old man, who earned his standing!

Seems where you see one bug … there are generally many others. But I've been TMP "Bugged" a number of times myself.

We should start a club. Only curmudgeons apply … evil grin

Dave,

It looks like your prophesy came true!

Is there any standard for how old or grumpy you have to be to be in this club.

Although to borrow a quote "any group that will allow me to join isn't one that I would want to be a member of." wink

Come on in, the water's just starting to get warm … and a little bit bubbly.

I would say that if you feel old and wake up grumpy, then you qualify. I propose this organization be called the International Brotherhood of Curmudgeons--and any gals who don't like the name can start their own damned club.

I was thinking the same COL. Groucho Marx was a wise man … evil grin

Or like the Little Rascals, Our Gang Comedies … "The He Man Woman Haters Club" … Not very PC by today's standards. But we're talking Spanky, Alfalfa, Buckwheat, etc. … some @ 80+ years ago. wink

Like the rumor in the 1st Grade … you get cooties from kissing girls … huh?
