not much on WebmasterWorld angers me, but this is something I've seen again and again.
1. New member breaks a news story. May just post a link to a news site or perhaps leaves his/her opinion.
2. Less than an hour later, big important WebmasterWorld mod comes along and starts the same thread with news link and excerpt. Gets put straight onto front page as featured thread.
Optional 3. Little gal/guy comes along on about message #5 saying "I posted this here:" and posts link to abandoned, orphaned thread.
I think the policy here should be to add to the original thread, add a link if required, add an excerpt if required, but not to steal the spotlight from the non-mod member.
maybe I'm being over sensitive...it's never happened to me BTW, but I always feel for the small guy when I see it happen.
