    I for one often post again in the same thread, even when my reply is the latest, because I find a new post, or something else to reply to, knowing that my posts will be merged. It's much quicker than actually going into Edit and manually adding the quote etc. As you all know, the site throws the MERGED code in your post, which I always edit away, because I was aware that my posts would be merged.

    Couldn't we have it something like this, and remove the adding of the MERGED text in the new post?

    While I like this idea I still think we need to fix the issue of not getting notifications after someone double posts.

    I agree. Sometimes there are good reasons to post again in a thread, and for watchers to be notified of this. Notifications are not sent for edits (understandably) so it might be important for watchers to know about newly added information.
