I saw a “help” link at the bottom of the page. I clicked it. It went to a form to report problems. So I reported my problem….

Commenting Problems Update

And was told that my message could not be delivered.

    You probably won’t see this, Dave, but I love that image. It’s how I feel most days lately.

  2. Dave,
    I love the graphic (I feel my head is between the hammer 🔨 and the keyboard 🎹 when trapped by insoluble tech situations that one must be 50 years younger than I to type through). I am faced with one such situation now; since I am unable to read or follow instructions my options are (a) live with it, sort of like a toothache that may go away on its own (as if), or (b) resort to your graphic solution, and then run wild and free through a webless landscape like an outlaw of olde (how long would I survive?) (would I be hunted down by google dogs, who always know where I am?), or (c) visit my local Apple Store, where I will play up my age disability (no need to play up my emotional disability as that would be immediately apparent as I describe my symptoms to the 23 year old Genius Barrister, who hopefully does not call all the other kids to gather round (like doctors doing rounds in a teaching hospital) to observe and snicker at my vestigial yearning for pre-digital times).

  3. I’m sorry this is happening to you, Dave. Wish I knew more about the inner workings of this website. One of these days it is all going to fall apart, and then we will have to shut it down. 🙁

    I feel for you, Dave. I no longer get emails when someone posts a comment on one of my stories, or accepts and comments back on a story that I’ve commented on, so there can no longer be discourse for me and I have to check the site frequently to see if I have comments on my own stories, which I can’t necessarily do if I have a busy day, or if my husband is on the computer (I don’t have my own laptop).

    As the Retro Admin says above, lots of bugs are creeping into the system that are affecting the way we use this website. At some point it may become untenable.
