Nah, that's not what I mean.
What I'm talking about is the phenomena that, when I try to answer some question is something, I click on the "reply" button, type up my pretty answer, and by the time I've posted, 5 other people have already answered the question.
All within 1 or 3 minutes. And all of them had much more intelligent answers than what I've typed up.
In the old version, that could be avoided by hitting "preview", and you'd see if somebody else had posted to the thread. In the new version, you have use some smart workaround (like the one Butrflynet came up with).
Anyways, the weird thing is this clustering of replies. Nobody replies to a thread for half an hour, and then, just
when I'm deciding to reply, nine other people squeeze in an intelligent answer.
It's the ghosts in the machine, I say.
