Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

Possible Duplicates:
Why has this question been migrated so many times into Meta ?
Extra votes to migrate lead to multiple posts

Look at the meta homepage right now. You'll see a ton of duplicate questions. Now here's the weird thing. These duplicate questions were migrated from a single SO question

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2915563/stackoverflow-reputation-repercussions-closed is the SO link

http://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/51294/stackoverflow-reputation-repercussions is one of the Meta links

@Pop was that one created before mine? Both were in the same minute –  Earlz May 26 '10 at 18:27
    
This is the earliest: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/51307/… –  Jon Seigel May 26 '10 at 18:28
    
@Earlz: Your question 18:24:16, the other question 18:24:02. Well within honest dupe limits. But I thought they should be merged. Seems like this is being sorted out by the community now, though. –  Pops May 26 '10 at 18:33
    
@Pop Demand - Well the earliest question wasn't around when I posted mine. Voted to close mine anyway. Talk about making mess of a mess! –  Sathya May 26 '10 at 18:34

Now we have to start posting questions about all the questions that were posted about the duplicate questions. –  gnostradamus May 26 '10 at 18:38
    
@Earlz @Essjaaay @gnovices All I wanted to do was head off a branched discussion on the topic, not start a timestamp argument. But now it's just creating additional cruft. This is my last statement on the issue. –  Pops May 26 '10 at 18:46

1 Answer 1

At first I thought the original user just posted his question that many times and it was migrated that many times, but the revisions list clearly shows it's the same post.
