People exhibiting this type of behavior show no regard for the edit button, and usually have no idea the cure is quite simple: refresh, edit, and re-submit. While in the throws of a Linkitis-fit, afflicted posters will generally never delete their infected post, forcing other posters to take up the slack, delete THEIR own post, and make some sort of a cheeky reference.
This affliction occurs quite often on the Lostpedia forums, and was first discovered in late August of 2007. Named after Link McCloud, Linkitis is only getting worse lately; scientists are currently unable to figure out why this continues. Remember: refresh, edit, resubmit.

fredcar: Bananas. Do you like Baseball?

LINKITIS-INFLICTED POSTER 3: Pineapples.
This desease often is caused by tiny Linkittens which infest one's post and causes them to miss or ignore the post directly above them.
Malinkitis is often a variation of the desease that causes the poster to miss 2 or more posts.
The best ways to avoid Linkitis is to apply a Linkondom (also known as an Edit Button) or to abstain from posting in large groups where Linkittens are often prone to strike.
