this is confusing situation... you only see only by yourself.
let me explain: i am posting a pic, later someone can edit his post which was earlier than mine (few pages before) and he can put the same pic. you are a visitor now and how can you know which one is published first or second? you only see the number of the pages, but also everyone can edit their post any time they want.
you want me to write words!? have you've heard somewhere this phrase: ["A picture is worth a thousand words"]
so you wanna say... if someone edit his post, I must do the same with deleting the content? are you serious man?
and that's the moments when you can see intelligence on a person?

Or are you complaining because a post identical to one from two pages back, containing exactly no text, context or explanations, gets a total rating of zero?
No, there is nothing wrong with reposting, it was to the point and probably helpful to the discussion, i just didn't think it guaranteed any extra recognition, since i remembered that the exact same information had been posted very recently in the same spot. I don't think that a post with a rating of zero should be interpreted as a punishment, and that was not my intention either.
And FYI many members here do go back to read the last X posts of any thread (X >> 30) before posting there. That is what allows an inteligent discussion not to be drowned in noise. To me that's just respect to the readers.
