I cannot report this in the Embarcadero Community forums, as they are offline
right now. And there is no section in QualityPortal for reporting website
issues. So, here we go...

On the main Embarcadero website, under the "Develop iOS applications with
RAD Studio" page:

http://www.embarcadero.com/products/rad-studio/ios-development

The "Learn More" link in the "Develop apps for iPhone and iPad" section goes
to a DocWiki page that has been deleted:

http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE8/en/Mobile_Tutorial:_Creating_a_FireMonkey_Mobile_Application_(iOS_and_Android)

This page has been deleted. The deletion and move log for the page are provided
below for reference.

This link works:

Remy,

This site has gotten to a HORRIBLE state of multiple/MANY repeating
posts!

Do you know or can you do something about it?

That is because the forum server is severely broken, frequently crashing
and going offline. LONG LONG standing problem for a few years now. In this
particular case, when an NNTP client tries to post a message, more times
than not the message does get accepted by the server but the client does
not receive confirmation of that correctly, so the client keeps trying to
re-post the same message over and over, thus the duplicates.

Do you know or can you do something about it?

There is nothing you can do about it. It is a server problem.
