which one is right?
Some people are getting this very same problem, some/others aren't.
I go for 'others'.
To me, they are slightly different: if you use "some" on both sides, you are implying you view both alternatives as fairly equally represented. If you use "some/others" I think you're recognising both possibilities but are showing you don't know what the relative proportions are. Or maybe I haven't had enough coffee this morning.
