  • Yes, @YOU, but I think it's a duplicate, so no need to repeat the (now deleted) answer then?

  • @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.

  • 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...)

  • (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, 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.

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

  • Ah, that could be the case

  • Yes, @YOU, and failing a response from the OP, I guess this is just a duplicate then...
