    That was the record at one point, but last June this 12½ year bump appeared. Fortunately, ...

    I think both are right on this. On shorter threads, people should at least read them or even use Ctrl+F to search for a keyword to see if it had been mentioned. But pudgym is right as well. On the really long threads you aren't going to look through every page before you post about something that might have been mentioned. Usually someone will say "Sorry if this was mentioned before..." which is usually the accepted way rather than the assumptive "I can't believe no one has mentioned..." So we got you on that one pudgym! :wink:

    Oh, I meant it all in good fun, a little bit of razzing. It's just something I've noticed across message boards and Facebook and it amuses me somewhat and I'm surprised there isn't a name for it (like Skitt's Law/Muphry's Law/Gaudere's Law that states any post correcting spelling or grammar will/is likely to contain a spelling or grammar error itself.) I have certainly been a victim of it myself.
