I had posted a 'newTopic' titled "Online forum" in which I sought help on an issue. I had another question on the same topic but I decided not to post it as a reply. I created a new "Online forum" topic, within the same forum as the first. I wanted to know how JBoss forum handles creating duplicate topics within a forum. It appears it was allowed. Can anyone help me with the logic or reason behind this. I used to think that it should be disallowed.
