I can think of several reasons:

1) They don't get an answer or an answer they like the first time asked.
2) Their question gets pushed back a page or two and they want to put it on the first page again, hoping for another response.
3) They don't realize it takes a few minutes for a question to post so they enter it again, thinking it didn't register the first time.
4) They are just trying to annoy.
5) They forget they have posted the question previously.
6)  They enjoy seeing their words on the net.

Look at today's date. Now look at the date this question was posted. Now look at the date of the comment to which you replied.

this is the third question i have seen with this title STOP asking this question over and over (nothing against you kelsey but it is getting annoying)

Yay! You understand the irony, too!
yeah i cant stand when someone post a question and then post it again under a different username or a different channel
or don't do a search FIRST and ask a question that has been answered innumerable times....
exactly it is so irritating

probably they want a different answer maybe because they want to create a popular question some how probably they wanna keep searching till theyfind what they want

Searching and reading seem to be too hard for some so questions get repeated.

As said some don't like the first answer and look for one they do - doesn't happen often though.
