What's the desired response by us non-enhanced members of the JR community to the Mega Multi Posts.
Should we ignore them until the moderators request that the mess is sorted out? Does our posting prevent an easy clean up? Or what?

Personaly I think you should just be wary about creating duplicate conversations. If there are three duplicates and one of them has an answer, post your question in that thread rather than in one of the others.
You could also post a reply in the other threads pointing to the one with the reply and asking people to post there.
The whole militant-thread-dupe thing is all geared towards preventing duplicate conversations and wasting everyones time.
If you try to point to one thread then usually Map will find the duplicates and close them.
The harder you work, the luckier you get. This tiny ad brings luck - just not good luck or bad luck.
