Anytime you try to use the forums it's always an adventure.
What's not going to work today.
I get the impression the priority is on adding more money making features to cnet and not on getting what they already have to function.
Sometimes you just wait an hour and try it again and now it works.
I've experienced some extremely dysfunctional responses trying to access these forums over the years, on different machines.
Just now, I tried in vain to reply to a post I made a few hours ago. I reloaded it, I rebooted my mahine, I pounded the Reply button so many times - it highlights but just won't respond. What's going on??
