In the same vein as duplicate threads, should we report when the forum creates multiple instances of the same post, so that a moderator can come and clean the mess (and increase performance by reducing total post count ;) )

Here is one :
http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=557148#557148

It has been entered 22 (!) times (last one is http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?p=557478#557478 ), making the thread difficult to follow...

Yes, feel free to report that. If there are replies the author is unable to remove his own posts so a Moderator is needed. :(

Thanks for pointing them out. Also, there's a sticky thread in this forum for just this purpose (Report posts that may be duplicates, or need to be moved.).

I thought this thread was used to report duplicate threads (mostly due to lack of search by user), not multiple posts (mostly due to human or network error)... but who cares, it can be used for both.

Shall I report myself for posting a dupe ? ;)

That thread is a good place to report almost anything related to posting issues. For example, if someone created an account with a truly offensive avatar or sig image, that thread would be a good place to report it, especially if it appears that there are no moderators on to handle the issue. If there is a moderator on, you can always PM them with this type of information as well. The whole idea is to make the forums as useful, easy to use, and enjoyable as possible, so the faster things like duplicate posts, out of place posts, or offensive posts are taken care of the better. ;-)
