Avoid triple posts on OTN forums

Recently the OTN forum software (Jive or Boogie(!)) duplicates or triples posts and it gets harder to follow the threads. One other thing is that multiple users answer the different threads (sometimes even the same person).
As I’m posting quite a lot on the forum I kind of ‘know’ when this duplication is going to happen. So here’s the trick how I avoid this.:
1. before hitting the replay button make a copy of the whole post into the clipboard
2. hit the replay button and count to 10 (slowly)
3. if the replay has not been accepted, cancel the request in the browser
4. click the forum link above the replay and in 90% the replay is there only once
5. if you don’t see the replay you have to do it again using the clipboard
