Why are reviews shown in multiples? 2nd:Why are yes/no on reviews saved

The multiples happening is a relatively new problem (last year or so, I've been a IMDB user since 1993)
When reading user reviews, I have been reporting duplicate entries, but I've come to realise/assume that the multiple identical reviews are NOT duplicate entries, but glitches in IMDB interface, that happen when we click "Load more", and then the ones we've already yes/no'd to show up again, without our yes/no, as if it was a unique comment.
So annoying to be reading reviews, and be shown the same ones over and over again.

A secondary part of the problem is that my yes/no on "usefulness" of the review is not saved. So when I reload the page (as frequently happens with bad connections), I have to start all over again. This is ridiculous, when we yes/no the reviews, it should remain visible!

I think these two closely related problems might be in a same coding region.
