Is there a fundamental reason why there are so many double-postings? Maybe this has already been discussed, before?

My guess is that when the posters post, they:
  • See something (maybe a "working..." indicator of some kind)
  • See something else that makes them think their post wasn't posted
  • Click the back button
  • Re-post the post
Since the no-post time limit isn't stopping these double-posts, would it be possible to add some logic that looks at a poster's recently-posted thread title and do, let's suppose, a 90% similarity match?
