    Breaking News post by Weatherman (thanks W) on the SC decision to lift injunction on most of the President's travel ban. Odium and Grampa Murked start the same threads in Current Events within five minutes without even checking. It isn't like these were hours apart, guys. How hard would it be to eyeball page 1 of the Breaking News Forum, the Politics Forum and the Current Events Forum plus the Active Topics before starting a new thread on the same thing?

    One can only conclude it's pure narcissism. "I wanna see MY name on the internets, because me me me".

    Maybe the site should charge a fine for posting something that's obviously already running. Let them fund that server they're already taxing.

    I don't even care.
    If it pushes some thread off the page, it was way down there and we were done with that shit anyway.

    I think some posters might wish to discuss certain breaking news items in a more 'relaxed' forum such as Current Events, rather than in Breaking News.

    They may also want, or plan to, continue to debate the issue after it is no longer considered 'breaking' which is a consideration in 'Breaking News' I believe. They might also want to debate around the subject more.

    There are always duplicate threads here and the mods do a good job on this considering they aren't here 24/7. I really don't see why it irritates some people so bigly :)

    Simply because it takes all the effort of moving one's eyeballs to the right side of the page to notice the story's already there, which is after all a high probability in something that just happened.

    Personally I'm offended by intellectual sloth and by narcissism, either or both of which seem to be a causation here. I *never* start a thread without first doing a comprehensive search to see if somebody else did it already. That's just simple common courtesy.

    The only thread I can think of that got merged with an older one was when I reported the Jeremy Christian stabbing -- the one it got merged with had a title that made no reference to the actual event at all and gave no clue as to what it was about.
