GeneralSo much cross-posting! PinmemberVasudevan Deepak Kumar13-Nov-12 9:28 
Time and again we witness people desperately cross-posting the same query across multiple forums in the website. I trying to see if instead of reprimanding them why can't we have smart validation of 'similar'* messages posted by the same user in a 'specified'* time-frame.
* These can be configurable parameters based on user behavior and can be used as a valuable heuristic tool later.
And again I am not sure if this strategy would immediately befit as a site suggestion and hence initiating this brainstorming in Lounge.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep!
