Just in case the admins haven't noticed....
The Computerworld bot (or whatever it is) seems to be making a lot of double (occasionally triple) posts.

I deleted dupes, trips (and sometimes quads) all the way back to the end of May. Seems this bot has been cheating to pump up its post count for quite some time. It's become self-aware, I think. ;)

wonder if each time ti get edited the article got posted.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Hmm... who knows. Might really just be a bot gremlin or something.

The bot is definitely screwed up. I'm not going to delete any more dupes, trips, etc. I'll spend half my day doing it. Just ignore.
