Its not really clear what she did. I cant either figure out what she means by submitting and resubmitting. If she was "applying" then we could figure out what she did. But who calls applying online "submitting forms"
I think a big problem on the blog lies in the fact that people do not understand that "comment" does not mean "please ask every question that may pop into your head" (its also obvious from the people that phrase their comments "Dan: what do I do..." that they perceive the comments sections as an "ask dan" section) There may also be a few trolls running around here.
And its extremely rude that people cannot be bothered to read other comments before reposting previously asked questions. One solution to that is the old "deadspin method" (deadspin.com the raunchy sports blog)- all commentators (commenters?) go through a vesting process whereby they can post comments, but their comments will not appear on the site until they are given "approved commenter" status by an admin. You are only granted approved status after around 10/15 comments that make sense and show a sensitivity to not wasting other people's time. Also your commenting privileges can be suspended or revoked at any time, which makes people think twice before posting a comment. Annoying and maybe not appropriate here but the comments on the blog are turning into a mess imo.
