This drop-down thing is annoying and does not close. It
will not listen to my shouting. I would like to back it
out of my account, but I see no option for this.

    I have noticed the same problem. The close button actually
    does work, but moving the cursor to any point below the
    first comment causes the box to reappear. Thus if the screen
    is scrolled so that the summery is no longer visible the box
    can't be closed.

    The only way I have found so far to read through without the
    box blocking the top 1/3 of the window is to close it at the
    top, then keep the cursor over the scroll bar while reading.

    It wouldn't be so bad if the control box didn't cover the
    text, but as is this is extremely annoying.
