The messages are sorted by post time -- possibly in minutes. If two posts have the same post time... what's the second sort criterion? Name? in reverse?
If we both post something the same minute, does yours automatically go first? even if I'm 15 seconds ahead?
I don't think so. It has to be the same second, the timestamp contains seconds10
so why would it ignore it? It would happen much more often if it was the case. Also it was said before that when one of the two edits the message later, it can switch position.
If I recall correctly from another forum where this was discussed, the reason for ninja-posts is that the post was already submitted before you even click "Reply"20
. It should be shown under the "Post a reply" dialog (but nobody checks that) therefore it does not warn you there is new message.10
Oh, you have to change it in personal settings, to see seconds20
The same-second posts is another case
