Shoot. My url had ?_r=1 added to yours.

mk or forwardslash, is there any way you can get the url compare tool to ignore anything after question marks? It's not the first time this happened in this way.

Any solution to this can be a problem, you can't just ignore everything after the ?

Imagine a blog post with this URL: myblog.com/?post=152

Many websites depend on what follows after the ? to display different content, even hubski a few months ago used to do that.

But I agree that a method to compare URL similarities is a good idea. I think this method should warn the user about previous posts or give them a list of similar URLs, ultimately the user will have to make the decision of posting that URL based on manual comparison with the list of similar URLs.
