Mine used to do the same thing. I noticed that I was always hitting the snare rim and realized that the throne had spun down (a little bit at a time as I got on/off) and I was like 4" too low, squatting like a Neanderthal.
In my case, 1) the seat was not spinning freely around the post and 2) the set screw thing wasn't doing a great job on the threaded portion.
