When I am trying to post a message on Slashdot.org, I
am sent to the Most Active Discussions page (http:
//slashdot.org/comments.pl). I have not tried being
logged out, or posting as a logged in Anonymous Coward,
but it is occurring in multiple stories and in two different
browsers (Opera 7.20.3144 and Internet Explorer 6.0.
2800.1106 on Windows 2000). ZIP file of PNG screenshots
included (shots taken in Opera on a discussion about USB
2.0 devices, but identical effect occured on discussion of
the Psion Netbook Pro on both Opera and Internet
Explorer).

    I've been experiencing this exact same problem. Probably 4
    times in the past few weeks. It didn't used to happen. It's
    very upsetting, because some of my comments take a long
    time to think through, and they are lost when this happens.

    I'm using IE6. I'm always logged in and I'm a paid subscriber.
    Some of my posts take 20 or more minutes to think out,
    despite usually being a few sentences.
