    Links to the posts would be a big help, otherwise we can do nothing about it.

    I meant no harm by it, you need to lighten up. If you took it to offense, then I apologize, as I said no harm was meant by it. How do you expect us to correct a problem, if we do not know what you are talking about?

    Also, do not refer to me as son...

    1. I am not your son, thankfully.

    2. I am not a child.

    Now back to your original reason for this post. Could it be you were trying to post in a closed thread? Otherwise it very well could have had something to do with the updates. Either way I am sure we can fix the problem.

    Nothing wrong with it... Probably a problem at your end.

    I have a strange one opening threads:

    I've tried to get to a thread I did 2 years ago but.....the only way to explain it is to do this.

    Go to my Profile
    Click on My Threads
    anybody who can open page 12 of my list of threads gets a cookie!

    Really strange, been trying to open it for a week now.

    Chris,

    Try to cleanup your history, especially the cookies. This can easily be done in Firefox, but if you're using IE, good luck.

    Since I am using IE8 that must be why I can't open my page 2 of "My Threads." The crazy part was that when you could still view the user profiles while logged off I could open that link. When I logged in it wouldn't work anymore...

    I recomend everyone to install a second browser next to their standard one, even if you want to use IE as a standard. Install Chrome or Firefox for these kind of things. Any one of these browsers can get problems and you can test with the other browsers if they have the same problem.
    But rule no.1:
    Regularly clean up your history, so throw away cookies, cache, passwords, the whole lot. About 80% of these kind of problems come from truncated history fiiles in any of these browsers.
