At least twice today I have seen an identical question quickly appear twice in a row. Has the question-ask UI been fiddled to be a little less responsive?
(I remember the days of Netscape on Usenet. New users would post the same thing always three times and then give up. You post something, and you expect it to appear. Post it again, and that's odd it still doesn't appear. Post it a third time, and you know Netscape is really broken.)
