multiple problems posted on the same thread

Is there anything you can do about members "jumping in" on someone else's thread when they think they have a similar problem as the OP?
I don't need to tell you that this leads to confusion (which reply is for which post?), and posters who do this may never get a reply because that thread shows up on the board as having received dozens of replies already.

Example: http://www.softwaretipsandtricks.com...-no-sound.html

This thread contains 160 posts already, because members are 'hijacking' it to post their own problem!

Those who reply with help are encouraging it by not pointing out that it's bad practice to post a problem in someone else's thread. It's getting so bad I'm considering leaving the forum.

Its little hard, but people are able to figure out (using quotes).

You can't expect discussion forum to be perfectly organized like a help desk ticket.

I appreciate your replying to my post. Some forums are better than others in this respect. I do admit to having a slight obsession for wanting everything to be neat & tidy - my wife constantly reminds me of it!

Sometimes it's a lost cause, I guess.
