using IE for Mac Classic, I cannot post on Metafilter June 19, 2004 9:21 AM   Subscribe

Since I'm able to post this, I have to assume I have not been banned from Metafilter. And yet, using IE for Mac Classic, I cannot post on Metafilter.

(what happens, is, I can get a post to the point of Previewing it, but then I cannot post it: the post button doesn't work.

I've seen that phenomenon in IE on classic a long time ago when Matt, I presume, was tinkering with stuff. Tried mozilla/other browser yet, that sorted it out for me.

Actually you have been banned. Your ability to post is a bug in your other browser.

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

How did you post here?

I think you should just operate on the assumption that you've been banned. Give it a few months.

Be thankful it's not a Slackware Linux. That'd truly warp your mind!

Actually PP has been on his bestless than worst behavior on the EU vs USA thread; two-fifths cogent arguement, two-fifths pot stirring, one-fifth spit-take-lines like "I am about the least biggoted, xenophobic person you will ever meet."

You've clearly taken a step back from the brink; now if we could get some of the other agent provocateurs on both sides to do the same, this site will be much more fun.
Ooops, I forgot how many MeFites are Anti-Fun.

Society needs people like PP and their fractured take on life. Please fix this asap.

PP, go Mozilla! Camino 8b is out.
posted by skallas at 11:31 AM on June 21, 2004


Camino's great, but it's only for X: PP noted he is on Mac Classic.

PP, perhaps you could try WaMCom, built on Mozilla 1.3.1 for Mac Classic [15MB stuffit file]. It's not bleeding edge, certainly, but it's the bleedingest you'll get for Classic.
