Hello,
I have a question about the Microsoft Technet forums:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums

Short question:  All forum responses appear twice and out of chronological order. Why?

Long question:  I'm frequently scanning search results while a server is in trouble.  My memory should be concentrating on the problem at hand, not distracted by the awkward format of Technet results.

If I only knew the logic behind the forum.  Perhaps Microsoft doesn't care about browser results and they expect me to read with an app.  Please advise.

I also imagine a scenario where Microsoft upgraded IIS or other backend technologies, making a mess of legacy forum technology.

Whatever the answer, I'm sure there's an expert on the subject, thanks in advance.

I don't see any of those issues when I browse the forums.

What browser are you using?
Try the site on IE as some browsers don't always work well with the MS specific application controls that they use on some of their sites.

Thanks, I see that IE 10 displays results correctly.  When I wrote the post I was using Chrome (version 30.0...)

For me I always see the TechNet posts duplicated (IE 9, 10, 11--doesn't matter).
