"i myself haven't manged to double post :)"

You have now I notice, perhaps the FE will delete the other one :O)

The problem appears to be server overloads, and people are perhaps double or triple clicking in the 'waiting for' or Sorry error message zone?.

I think that most of us unintentionally double post on occasions, does it matter?

Androids browsrer seems to be the main culrit.with persistant 'browser not responding warnings.

It happened to me rcently and a I blamed my 'cheap' tablet, however at a lunch date a companion said the same problem arose on her 'high grade' tablet.

I have tried alternative browsers such as Lightning- still happens but not so much and FireFox for Android not at all but has other issues. The best so far is on my notebook running Crunch Bang with Iceweasel. Thats another story. j

It's because the site, to me at least, can be very s l o w and does not always react immediately causing me to think that I did not click on "post" so I do it again then I get two!

It doesn't matter how slow you think the site is running, once you click in your browser you send a post to our server, even if you don't see anything happen immediately. Click again, and you send a second copy, and so on.
