This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

looks like you had one deleted question 2 days ago, may be bug related to that? – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 12:00
so what could be the possible solution to post.. – GhostRider Apr 1 '11 at 12:13
@GhostRider, wait for the dev team to response. – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 12:13
@Arjan, your answer is valid answer imho. – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 13:07
Yes, @YOU, but I think it's a duplicate, so no need to repeat the (now deleted) answer then? – Arjan Apr 1 '11 at 13:10
@Arjan, Imm, I see, I still don't get that theory though, yesterday I read blog post about dups through Will's post, thought dups were not that bad. – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 13:15
Okay, I will delete again when/if this gets closed as a duplicate then, @you. ;-) (In the end, a simple search on the error message showed the duplicate; not the kind of duplicates that are helpful to people who use the search, and will get one definitive answer by a SE team member, and my answer that refers to that. I think...) – Arjan Apr 1 '11 at 13:18
(Confused about the handling of duplicates now, @YOU. Should one answer and vote to close...? I thought today's Unicorns were the only new thing for me!) – Arjan Apr 1 '11 at 13:42
@Arjan, I am not sure that too, looks ok to me, but there may be someone discouraging that. but anyway, at least I learnt the existance of such mechanism from your answer. – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 13:47

This is based on IP address, so most likely there are other accounts using the same IP address?

Ah, that could be the case – YOU Apr 1 '11 at 12:37
Yes, @YOU, and failing a response from the OP, I guess this is just a duplicate then... – Arjan Apr 1 '11 at 12:57
Yep, probably other people in his company have accounts here as well and he's not aware of that. – Shadow Wizard Apr 1 '11 at 20:40
