Why do duplicate/tripled questions often appear when asking here?

CAVEAT: This topic was for the previous instance of AskLO site driven by the AskBot engine. It does not apply to present site driven by the Discourse engine. It is kept for historical and archival purpose.

It has happened to me, and to many more.

One of the reasons is when you are editing your question, and you hit Backspace when the cursor is in the wrong place (not editing the question or the title). So the browser back off; and when you make it come back, the first question it’s already saved, and you appear working in a new one.

Generally it is not bad will of the one who asks.

If the same thing happened to you, once saved the final question, you can search for the first one, and click in delete below that question. To find your questions, click on your username at the top of the page.
