Submitting a post at the exact same time as another user causes a double post.

And the following 2 posts.

I would note that when i submitted the post i only clicked on post reply once. I did not double click, I did not refresh. When i clicked post my screen showed me the post in the middle of my double post.

Found it very odd.

    Actually don't know whats going on here exactly. I refreshed the page and the double post is missing, but then i have another double post with the exact same circimstances on the same page. Is this just a caching issue?

    Edit: On a third refresh my second double post disappeared. It seems like it is indeed a caching issue. I wonder what would have happened if i actually edited my double post. If i did would it have left a message there?

    Have seen this happen, if you try to edit one of the false double posts it starts editing the one that will actually remain after you refresh.

    I don't know the exact cause of it, but often times it'll APPEAR to double post, then one of them will delete itself after a few seconds, mostly if you just let it go, it'll fix itself
