Where? You can't just state your question without giving examples, or people will think it is spam. In your case, you said that there were alot of double posting in the forums, and where did you see that in?
Examples will also lengthen your posts, rather than you having the need to use that many dots there.

As for me, I ocassionally double-post to revive a thread, because the last post has not gotten anyone's attention yet.

That person who double-posted, if you notice carefully, is rather new at the forums, whether it comes to when he joined or the attitude. Guess he isn't too well informed of the rules here...
Members like me who have been around for a long time usually use the Edit button, although some new members who have experience with posting at forums will too.

The best thing you can do if you see double posting that doesn’t look like an accident (IE It’s not the same post twice or more) then just PM a mod so they can inform that person it’s against the rules.

Thats what I always do XD;
When I see a D-Post I warn that person... Well... Sometimes I say some weird things like "Use the Edit Button or Gulpin will punish ya!" O___o

If the new members do that, why couldn't they take the time to check out the rules?

I like avatars like this one, maybe I should make one someday too.
I was a bit surprised that Duke R had a petition banner for the manga on his signature too.
