As seen in this question, when multiple people use the new canned response on a deletion recommendation in the Low Quality queue, the comments can fill up and become an echo chamber. Certainly this dilutes the message.

Feature request: If one of the canned comments is currently live on the post, don't add a duplicate.

  • Am I missing something, or do none of the examples in the question you link to have such multiple comments?

    Nope, each example had exactly one comment. The author was confused because each example had the same comment. @Bart

This is already implemented.

The author of the question you link to got three identical notifications because he had three different answers with the same issue (all of which are now deleted).

While this is also somewhat annoying, I'm going to call it .

  • emmm if it is by design, why mark it as completed? Or if it completed, why mark it as by design in your answer?

  • @amanaPlanaCAnalPAnaMA he's referring to different things; completed because they are prevented, showing 3 notifications for 3 answers is by design

  • I love it when a feature is implemented before I even ask for it. Probably because that's how my managers expect me to work.
