I don't seem to be able to respond to JEs! Punishment for spending time with Multiply? Hmmmm.

Turn off the University of Michigan Testing Discussion system and you'll be able to reply easily.

Speaking of Michigan...

The Ohio State and Michigan football teams recently had a bet this football offseason - the Michigan football team, upset by losing 3 in a row to Ohio State, challenged the Ohio State football team to a weekend competition - Ice Fishing.

So, Lloyd Carr, Michigan Coach, and Jim Tressel, Ohio State coach, each selected 5 players to go Ice Fishing with them, and they headed out to the ice shanties. On the first day, Saturday, the Ohio State fishers caught 9 fish, the Michigan team caught zero. On Sunday, Ohio State caught 15 fish, the Michigan team again caught zero. Suspicious of this, Llyod Carr sent Chad Henne, Michigan QB, to see if the Buckeyes were cheating.

After a half hour, Chad Henne came back and delivered the verdict. "They sure are cheating, coach Carr! They're cutting holes in the ice!!"

Look a the left side of the screen where the widget is where you can set the threshold for the comments. The "reply" link is there...

Yeah that would be punishment for using Slashdot, not Multiply.

Or the punishment for opting into the beta testing of the Discussion system. ;)

Those of us who chose not to participate apparently can reply like we always could before. I haven't even seen the floaty menu thingy that everyone keeps talking about, and I suspect that is for the same reason.

You can't get rid of the widget now, either.

I hope that /. get an option "remove floating widgets" and put the buttons in the page, where they should be. Shame, because I like most of the new system...
