Change subject line

Many times after attempting a second post to a thread have got this error message

"You already have a follow-up listed with the same subject. If you didn't see your message listed, you probably need to reload the page.
If you want to submit another follow-up to the same message, please change the subject line."

Which although it makes no sense to me I have always successfully addressed by changing its title and resubmitting. But last time I still got the same error message so was unable to post further to that thread. Is the title not the subject line

I think the Forum is trying to tell you something.

RE: Change subject line

I find the posts very entertaining. Wow.

RE: Change subject line

This is an older style forum which none of us has a way of altering its setup nor are there really any explanation pages. We just go with what is and don't get too carried away with they "why's" of the forum. It just is.
I too have had the same issue from time to time. It seems to happen if I am the last post on the thread and want to comment further in another post. So, while it is still under that same thread, I just change a word in the subject line. I keep the RE:

RE: Change subject line

"It seems to happen if I am the last post on the thread and want to comment further in another post. "

Thank you Zoo for that hint, it's reassuring that I'm not the only victim of this glitch
