This is just something I keep noticing, just wondering why it happens.

Or if it's just my display somehow. Words repeat every now and then on the stackexcange site. For instance here: How do you get thumbnails to show up in the admin edit post?

Here's a screen grab, in case it is just on my end

enter image description here

in my reply it says top right right

I used to think I was just being an idiot. But I see it semi-frequently. And not just in my answers.

Anybody else notice it or have a clue why it happens? Just a curiosity more than anything.... but I am taking a writing class, so things like that catch my eye lately.

    Double words can happen sometimes when you spend too much time time working on a computer. It happens to me me all the time time. Wearing Gunner optics has helped my eye strain strain some. – Chris_O May 20 '11 at 18:33
  • Thats a good one Chris_O i suffer from this sometimes then i also swear i see questions that where there and are not really there at all – xLRDxREVENGEx May 20 '11 at 19:02
  • Seriously though this is a weird bug. I only see 1 right. – Chris_O May 20 '11 at 23:56

This has been reported on Meta Stack Overflow, so you are not alone. You might want to vote for the issue report there.

Internet Explorer 6 has a bug where content is duplicated. You should upgrade. :P

  • I'm on 7, not 6.... so it isn't that bad!!! I have no option to upgrade, I'm locked down at work. ON a quick google, it was an IE6 bug that was fixed for 7. Maybe it wasn't fixed? I've never seen it on another site except SE, that's why I found it so curious! – Rev. Voodoo May 21 '11 at 10:57

This can happen in certain old browsers, but I have never seen it in newer browsers.
