Where do I begin?
Duplicate topics are almost ALWAYS considered to ‘clog up the forum’.
If it’s a duplicate of a recent topic that’s still being posted in, that’s true, it is kinda annoying to see two or more REAALLLY similar topics in latest.
But think about this…
Are duplicates of inactive topics REALLY clogging up the forum?
To be honest, what would count as clogging up the forum?
The only thing that would REALLY count as clogging up the forum is two or more similar topics being posted in at the same time. Think about it. An inactive topic isn’t bothering you, it’s not showing up in your latest. So really only one of that kind of topic is bothering you. And that’s why dupes are (sometimes) not clogging up the HSF.
