Problem posting comments November 2, 2001 9:20 PM   Subscribe

Apologies in advance if this is a really dumb problem, but I can't post a comment to MeFi. Just when I'd finally got up the courage to join in!

I log in, type my comment & press [Preview] and it just takes me back to the login screen. I have tried logging out & in again, it didn't help. Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

This is my first post here too - maybe this won't work either...

odd. you have cookies enabled and can post here just fine. Do you have javascript enabled as well?

Cookies and javascript are indeed enabled.

I have discovered what was causing the problem. This is a great relief as I discovered I couldn't post a comment here either and I didn't want you thinking that I was ignoring your assistance.

I use an add-on program with IE to block tracking network cookies (IDcide Privacy Companion) and it was this that was/is somehow interfering. Disabling it long enough to post a comment is all I needed to do.

I have no idea why it should interfere in this way, but at least I know now, and the problem isn't a problem anymore - I have made my first post to MeFi at last!

Thank you very much for responding to my question, and for your creation and support of such a lively and fascinating community.
