Because, if you will note...

There is a 14 layer limit and if anyone desires to make a reply they will need to post it under "pimpcesss" "Peter don't tell who" or the original post at the beginning of the thread under the "French Keyboard" and make a reference to what post they are replying to.

See the notation...

Cnet limits the depth of threads to 12 replies, after which you're asked to continue the discussion by replying to the original post. When viewing the 12th reply in a thread you'll receive that notification (it's located right above the 'buttons' in your screenshot), and the reply button will be removed. It used to be limited to 7, but was extended to 12, determined to be a reasonable depth for a discussion, some time ago. The reason is the deeper a thread is allowed to go, the more complicated it gets on Cnet's end.

Hope this helps,

P.S. Nice use of ImageShack, Kevin!

Did you also notice

Did you also notice that Kevins blue scroll bar is missing. I think he wants it back.

Notice this screen shot

In reply to: Did you also notice

Rick I have a new friend here that makes the blue bar look tame.
Did you know it turned white last week? Now I think it has a split-personallity!
Wilkie, Rick showed me the way with ImageShack thank goodness.

John R., thanks for the limit thing. Pete did that intentionally so I could not post back to him as SHE.

Post back to you later after you all view this screen shot taken sometime early 3:15am EST 4/6/06. I have tomorrow off and enjoy this forum.
Good night!


NOW, take a look at Pete's original post. Hard to believe?

I hope it is a friendly one Rick. Remember the whacko movie ?
?The Ghost Busters?? That was one fun movie.
I hope that the Dough Boy was not you in disguise.

Just when I was getting used to my blue bar, it turned white as a ghost last week also. :

That overlay even happens

In reply to: Notice this screen shot

sometimes on a PC, just X it out, or Ctrl/Alt/Delete or just clearing out cookies/temp files and then a restart cures a lot of odd things.

In reply to: That overlay even happens

John R, Interesting to view the first time for me also. I guess that I am not totally nuts here after all. I looked at the screen and I said to myself?
?Oh, no! More crap!?
Thanks for the info.
Now that you have seen this image before, would you believe this sort of whacked-out stuff may happen on a Mac also? :
