Duplicating questions. Every question should be posted only within one forum and within one discussion.

When duplicating questions are discovered in different forums, all similar messages will be deleted.

When violating the rules the users are given the notices or penalty points, and relevant messages are deleted. For flagrant violations of the rules, the user will be removed from the forum.
