Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

A couple times today I have seen the exact duplicate question posted on SO, one right after the other. One example is this set: 1224217 and 1224218. Another was this(1223322) and its pair, which has been deleted. Is this possibly a bug or is there a reasonable explanation for it?

We accidentally removed the javascript double-click prevention on the submit button. That is fixed now.

Thanks. I will put a lonely tick in the 'not going crazy' column. – akf Aug 5 '09 at 11:47

I'm still seeing this behavior as of 8/31/2009. Double posts seem frequent for both question responses and comments.
