A moment ago it occurred to me that there had to be some kind of phpBB3 mod that automatically merges double post's, after a bit of googleling I think I found it.
If it works it would be quite a nice addition to this forum, would even shorten the rules list (You don't need to have a rule against double post's when it is impossible to double post) and make things a bit easier to new members who don't know about double posting.

Jbyrne, what about the older members who double post to get thier kicks off? Sure, it would make their actions less offensive to others, but it just wouldn't be the same?

You know how I feel about modding the forum!

Anyway this mod isn't necessary. If a user double posts then they'll just get told off or a warning for it. Its in the rules, and its their fault if they don't follow them, new user or not.

There's a flood limit in phpBB3 (No doubt enabled, but never encountered it myself) that prevents you double posting within a certain period, usually 30secs, and that is sufficient for the majority of double posts, and certainly all accidental ones.

It is enabled, but Admins and Mods are exempt from the rule due to the nature of our "job". We may post more often than normal users do or make many changes in a small time (e.g. editing someones post).
