That's odd, I already submitted this one. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=15265016

I thought HN handled duplicates by redirecting to the existing submission and automatically upvoting it?

Once a submissions grows old enough without having gotten significant attention those upvotes don't matter anyway, so a repost is allowed.


Yikes, I guess I should be ashamed of myself for even asking...

One on occasion I saw a second posting of the same article as me from a few minutes apart - commenting on the other one being confused was for some reason taken as some sort of attack on the other person to post it rather than my wondering what the software had done and attracted anger and downvotes in equal measure.

People confuse me sometimes.
