Is it me or is this site the most user unfriendly one I've ever seen? I can't reply to other folks posts. Now I can't even send this message. If it gets out there it's purely by accident. Thanks anyway.

Did you remember to put 8 quarters into the slot on the front of your computer?

Hi Joanie.
You can reply to other people's comments in the thread where the comment is. As long as you are logged in (you can tell by looking at the top right of the screen - does your user name appear there? then you're logged in), you will be able to make comments in threads. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and there should be a white box. You can write a comment in that box and then click the "post comment" button below it.

You can write other people private messages (like in-site email) by going to the top right of the screen next to your user name -- there is a tiny picture of an envelope. Click on that, and you will go to the mail page. Another way is to click on someone's user name -- that will take you to their profile page with their personal info. On the profile page you can click on "send this person mail". If you get mail in return, the little picture of an envelope will turn yellow.

Are you sure you're turning your rotary dial all the way to the finger stop? Sometimes mine sticks a little when I try to phone a post in and I wind up having this same problem. You might want to clean it with some rubbing alcohol.

It's not a bug... it's a feature!

Hint re user-friendliness: it's "more inside", not "all inside".

Unfriendly, yes. Broken, no.

joaniek, I think you're having a problem with the way you're interacting with MetaFilter, and you may need a little more help getting started. I'll reply to the email you sent us, but I think I'm going to close this thread because it's not going to go anyplace good. Please check your email and I'll help you out.
