This happens WAY too much and I have stopped alerting duplicate threads cause it pisses me off and then I lose my own ATS reading time.
People are flat out lazy or they are in need of attention. It is not hard to check the boards and it takes less than 2mins.
If something like Jong dying happened an hour ago or even 5mins ago you BEST be sure there is already at least three threads on it. Remember you are
not the first one to hear of something all the time, ATS is worldly, some news travels to other areas first and it gets here first.
I always check the forum it should go in for new posts, then I check the search with the most important information from the link (because let's face
it NAMES come up and if you say you looked, you didn't) and then I check the New Topics Firehouse...It takes about 2-3mins and I have saved myself
from making duplicate threads many times. If something is a few months old I still check the forum it would be in and use search.
It is really annoying to see 10 threads on the SAME thing even a day after. Honestly, it's just being lazy!
