Windows 7: Does this happen to others as well?

Does this happen to others as well?

I've had this happen quite often on several different forums (including this forum). Someone asks a question and I post a solution. The OP doesn't acknowledge my post at all. Hours later, another poster comes along and posts a virtually identical solution (sometimes almost verbatim) and the OP comes back and tells the 2nd poster thanks for a great solution or whatever as if they never saw my post.

Why does this happen? Does it happen to others as well?

I have always considered it "Rude" for another poster to put the same info as a previous poster like it was his idea.

As everyone has said, it happens to others as well. Myself included.

Best thing you can do is ingore it and take pride in knowing that your solution in the end worked, regardless of someone posting it after yourself.
