Oh, that's definitely different :).

Either people looking for votes or not wanting to look like they were copying then, personally I don't care if someone posted before me. Though if they do I try to add an update to my post to an alternate solution or source of information, just to be different.

    This "problem" is even more on Mailing Lists (cause of greylisting), if someone tests some conditions and is not as fast as the other ones it often is that 5 messages with nearly same content arrive at the same time. if I am the last of the "helpers" it perhaps comes to my mind that i might "look silly" solely to the fact that i needed the longest to test and write it down ... People generally dont want to look silly ;-)
