Interesting -- it's ok if I'm logged in, but fails when I'm not.

I'm on FireFox, logged in, and I can't get into it.

Relogged on at .com instead of .org and now it's working fine.

yeah I'm having problems. But what is happening to me is when I try to preview a post the preview box gets filled with javascript and html from the askme page - as long as I avoid the [a href] tag I'm ok. Tried deleting cookies, emptying cache in FireFox and still no go - same applies for IE.
