Comments posting: WTF?

Temporarily breaking my JE silence due to this weirdness.

Was reading this story today, saw somebody's ill-thought-out comment, and clicked on "Reply to this".

Temporarily breaking my JE silence due to this weirdness.

Was reading this story today, saw somebody's ill-thought-out comment, and clicked on "Reply to this".

Having written my short-but-to-the-point response, I clicked "Preview". Scrolled about a bit (tiiiiny monitor nowadays, and Dillo still doesn't get on too well with /. so even tiny pages tend to span several screenfuls) to find where it had been displayed, and finally found:

You can't post to this page.

Anybody have a clue WTF that is all about? I don't believe I've seen that before. I was still logged in, and Dillo is configured to accept cookies from all of .slashdot.org. In short, I am flummoxed.

you're back, so you automatically get a point of favour. Good Job! It's been sulking in the corner, occasionally ordering pizza and making crank calls until we took away its phone privileges...

Hehe!

Actually, on the one hand, I never quite went away, I ended up making the odd posting here and there, but (apart from Turg's recent binary JE) it's generally been at a rate of maybe 3 postings per week rather than 3 per night!

And on the other hand, I'm not actually restarting my journaling, just having a random WTF?!

So all in all, you probably ought to take that point back! ;-) Sorry if it's been being a nuisance...
