    Default Placement of "REPLY" posts.

    Now, when you reply to a post from the "REPLY" option within the post (i.e. quoting the post), your new post appears directly below the quoted post rather than at the end of the thread. I think this is a bad innovation because these posts will be missed unless one goes back and looks at the whole thread, which one is unlikely to do. I think it makes more sense to keep things as they were and place all posts in chronological order. Because the quoted post appears in the response, it is clear what the new post is responding to, and nothing will be missed.

    Do you have a URL where this is happening? It isn't deliberate.

    On my computer, PIN 2 WIN's latest reply, "I AGREE," appears on page 3 of the "Are You Offended" thread under the quote that she is responding to.

    This is my latest post. Does it appear at the end of the thread or after the post that I'm quoting?

    Edit: It's at the end. Maybe the post by PIN 2 WIN is just a fluke and this issue is moot.

    I guess I don't see what you see, everything appears in chronological order on my test browsers (ie6, ie7, ff1, ff2, ff3, and safari)

    You may want to refresh your browser, or clear the cache. I don't know how that could happen exactly, but it's probably the browser this time and not something I screwed up.

    Is where it should appear.

    As I said above, my test post on this thread was in chronological order, so I guess it was a fluke. Do you see PIN 2 WIN's post "I AGREE" at the end of the tread or after the quoted post? I see it on page 3. Also, when I go to "last post" in a thread, I only see that post, but not the rest of the thread.

    Minor points, but my girlfriend is at work and I've had a few Jack & cokes, so it's a slow evening.

    What probably happened is that PIN 2 WIN quoted the text from the quick reply, which uses AJAX- those are a little weird some times for some reason.

    Okay. Enough space wasted on this topic. Have a great Thanksgiving and thanks as always for addressing our needs.

    The "Last Post" updates every 5 minutes, not in real-time
