I seem to be having a problem with this forum where most of my responses end up double posting. Can one of the mods please look into this?

This happens to a lot of us at one time or another.  It is random and can strike anyone!

It's related to your mouse.  If you move your mouse while clicking Submit the chance of a dbl post is higher.

I don't think it has happened to me. Now I rarely post with a computer. So maybe that has something to do with it.

It's the mouse...I have a wireless mouse and when the battery gets low I can left-click and it will double-click...I really notice it mostly when playing solitaire but I've seen that problem also causes double posts...It stops that behavior when I replace the battery ..

Thanks. Will replace the battery and see if that helps.

It's because the system likes so much what you have to say that it feels you should say it twice!  

Either that or your system is infected with the dreaded "double post virus".  :)
