    Several members in the "Help Desk" section have complained that, in some older threads, you see identical posts repeated until the end of the page.
    I have noticed that this happens when a guest (or unregistered member) posts in a thread (this was possible in the past; now, one has to be a registered member to be able to post).

    Here is one way to be able to see all posts:
    If you look at the top right corner of your LPSG screen (above the first post showing on the screen), you see a "Display Modes" option in the menu. By default, "Linear Mode" is selected. If you choose "Hybrid Mode" or "Threaded Mode", you will be able to see all the posts.

    If my explanations are obscure, try it, switch to "Hybrid Mode" or "Threaded Mode" and you'll see for yourself.:)

    EDIT: I just realized that Hung9Mike found the same solution before I did (I did not know when I first posted this):

    If you stop multiple threads, the terrorists win

    I do not seem to have "display" as an option anywhere on my screen to help get rid of the multiple posts. Any suggestions
