in reply to erasing cookies halfway writing a comment

the above was posted by me, bliako.

I think it was a false alarm because obviously no duplicate was posted above.

On the other hand, I am quite sure I did not click on "create" message twice one before erasing cookies and one afterwards.

Maybe reloading a page caused it to re-post.

sorry if wasting bandwidth here, feel free to erase,

    oops, spoke too soon. but on the right track

    Being logged in, I clicked "create". Message was created. Then erase cookies via browser history. Then reload the page. Result is it posts the same post a second time as "Anonymous Monk". Probably the desired behaviour though.

      Probably more "expected" than "desired". I suspect clearing the cookies also clears your browser's flag that otherwise would make it warn you about already posted data…
        I guess. (firefox)
