Looks like users can now post more than one answer. Is that set intentionally?

There is a setting for it, and it was set to allow only one answer per question per user. I just turned it off and back on, we'll see if it will help. FWIW, I think this is something that should be enforced by social convention as much as a technological limitation...

Yes, I would assume so too but maybe fresh users don't think about it in the first place.

Interestingly, writing two answers wasn't allowed for every user...whatever... not a big deal.

FWIW, I turned this setting back on (I hadn't discovered this post). Sometimes, it's the right thing to do.

I agree that when it needs to be enforced, social convetion is the way to do it.
