Double dipping?

What are people referring to when they talk about double dipping and why does it sound like it's a bad thing?

Thanks,

Double dipping occurs when damage is scaled twice by one source. For example, when you have Increased Elemental damage, and you use a spell that deals fire damage, and it crits and ignites (which deals damage over time after the fact), the increased elemental damage first scales up the spell, which determines the starting point for the damage the ignite will do. Then the increased elemental damage applies itself to the ignite, scaling it... well, essentially a second time. Therefor your % increased elemental damage "double dips" on ignites. Poison does the same thing.

Only certain types of damage scaling will double dip on a damage application. These can be seen on the wiki.
U MAD?
Double dipping will be addressed for 3.0.0, it is a way to gain more damage from a singular source, some people love it some people don't, it can trivialize what should be difficult content...so much so that some look at it as being an exploit.
