What happened to text copy on iPad?

Sometime in about the last week, the ability to copy text, say, from a comment or a post, has been lost on my iPad. If I try to copy text, I am confronted with only the choice to copy an image—an image that appears to be the blue background. I am no longer able to select or copy text in either Safari or Chrome on iOS (iPad in my case). I have tested several other sites and this frustrating deficit seems to be limited to metafilter. Have somehow, after years of participation with iPad somehow lost my way?

Is it considered bad form to engage in Slashdot style summaries? [rant inside]

Italic tags

Looks like Metafilter didn't drink its V8 today. Close your italics tags, people!
