# Why does this question appear twice in the hot list?

Allow me to refer you to my freehand circles:

I knew Jeff really does like us folks over at Gaming!

• You typed "Allow me to refer you to my freehand circles", but my brain saw "Give me infinite upvotes" Nov 5, 2011 at 4:57
• You mean the 40ish votes I got on my answer within a few hours weren't truly earned? :P

• Thank you for this question. Gimli's gender question was a nice read. Dec 9, 2011 at 21:22

I'm not sure how to answer this question without a lot of hand waving and speculation based on what was happening at the time this occurred so I'm going to go with a default answer of c-c-c-caching.

We need to catch this one in the act so thanks for bring it to our attention. I will be monitoring the hot list from Stack Exchange for dupes more diligently.

Closing this bug after waiting a full month for this issue to come up again.

• Well then do you know why it has 2 different hotness values for the same question?

Today we welcome another question so hot which needs to be listed twice!

Both links point to the same question Need to reduce: $\frac{(3-h) (3+h)}{h - 3}$. Again, the two questions have different hotnesses.
