Group Designation showing up three times in New Posts

I setup a categorical read group.
modules Used were:
restrict categories
widget Control Pro

in the post category, it is showing the name of the group three times, see screen shot – specifically table heading “Groups:”

I realize only one of those shows active, and so far, I haven’t noticed a degredation in performance, but I’m wondering if this is an anomaly, side effect and/or ??

using the Theme from Elegant themes: Vertex, reference:
significant plugins:

WP Security
Monarch (sm sharing plugin by Elegant Themes) reference:

Please advise if this is normal or not. Like I said, it doesn’t seem to be hindering performance, nor visible in any way other than this, but before moving forward with more content, I’d like to know its Ok.

    Thank you, that actually, makes perfect sense.

    Hi Elaine,

    Thanks for providing the screenshot, that makes it easy to help!

    It’s actually correct, what you see on those protected posts is due to your restricting them directly *and* through the category.

    – The first entry “vikings” is the group restricting access directly on the post.
    – The second entry “vikings Vikings” is the category “Vikings” restricting access to the post to members of the group “vikings”.

    If you edit one of the posts and remove the restriction to the group “vikings” and save it, you will see that the post is still restricted because it belongs to the restricting category “Vikings”.
