The "my comments" option from the pulldown menu has disappeared again.

Sometimes it disappears for me, but if I choose another option, it reappears.

An even easier option is to put the url http://www.metafilter.com/index.cfm?sortby=mycommentedthreads into your bookmarks somewhere.

I just used my comments successfully for the first time in a week. Every other time it has timed out. If it's that hard on the server, Matt should just take it away until the load is more under control.

It seems to only appear in the menu after another view option has been selected first.

I always feel really guilty and dirty and narcissistic when I "use" it. What next? "My witticisms"? "My cute rejoinders"? "My congratulations"? So I'm glad when it's down. It's an expensive query - Matt dixit - and it sort of skews the Metafilter experience.
The problem with MeFi is it's all Me, Me, Me and very little Fi.
Get rid of it, I say. (Just joshing, folks)

I suspect that the MeFi server squeals when comment-sluts like myself use "my comments". Killing it would be good.

Huh. Lookit dat. Thanks.

I don't use it often. But sometimes the front page gets so busy I can't even remember which threads I posted in, so it's convenient to easily track down the threads where somebody's responding to me.

Well, I had MSIE 5.5 on my work machine (NT, SP6a) and I could see "my comments." At home I had IE6 (Win2k, SP2) and there is no option to view "my comments." As soon as I "upgraded" to IE6 at work the option for my comments disappeared as well.

It is never hit or miss with me. They immediately disappeared as soon as I installed IE6 (Windows) :(

Thanks for the tip on the bookmarking though.

I stand corrected. For the first time "mycomments" suddenly appeared as an option :) Figures
