what's with all the cross posting lately?

Just noting an observation. There is another cross post right now, and I've seen what seems like several others in recent weeks.
I wouldn't mention it, but I knew I'd switched forums, and there was the same post I'd already read. Thought I was having a "senior moment". LOL!

The funny thing is that the offenders are often experienced, long-time posters who you'd think would know better.

I think the mods usually delete them.

Cross-posting is religious in nature and should be deleted. 

 

Oops, I must be on the wrong thread.

Could someone please tell us what cross posting is?  I don't ever recall seeing this term here.   TIA!

Maybe this is it: I post a recipe on the recipe forum and come here and post the same thing.  Just a guess.
