Um ...

Why is LJ not letting me reply to comments -- even comments made directly to me? It says "you are not authorized to reply to this protected entry", even though it's to people on my flist. Is anyone else having this problem, or had the computer decided I've been a bad boy?

hmmm ... here's me testing if I can leave a comment on your LJ.

Maybe try logging out, opening a new window and logging in? My solution to all technical issues is to turn things off and back on. :)

That may do it; I'm at work, so I can't completely log out of the computer at the moment. However, most of my comments do seem to be getting through; and besides, much as I hate to admit it, there are other things I'm supposed to be doing at the moment!

Okay, I'm looking pretty foolish. Apparently it's only a very small percentage that aren't going out, although I still haven't found a rhyme or reason to which.

aw, you're computer is a bad boy. Punish him. ;)

Oh, you've got the relationship all wrong:

It's the computer that punishes ME.

At least it's letting me reply to *some* comments -- if this goes through.

A little S&M with the ol' PC, eh?

Yeah, but I like to be the Top, so it's not at all fun for me. Also, the kitchen sink's been electrocuting me lately. Coincidence? I don't think so.

Stupid LJ
I had that exact problem with not being able to reply to comments via the email notification, and got round it then by going via My LJ. Next day it was all back to normal though and (fingers crossed) I haven't had the problem again.

"ghosts in the machine".

What worries me is wondering how many comments may have been dropped entirely, and whether anyone is upset because they think I'm ignoring them. I don't like upsetting people, with the exception of people who deserve to be upset.

Re: Stupid LJ
Here's another useful link - which lets you see the last 50 comments on your LJ (and which are still screened) plus the last 50 places you commented. Apologies if it's one you already have.

Nope, I didn't have it -- but I'm really glad I do now, thanks.

You're welcome - it came in really handy for me (and lots of others) when LJ was wonky over the server switch.

wonkyness
LJ does get wonky sometimes ...

By the way, after doing a doubletake on your icon I almost fell off my chair laughing.

Always happy to make people laugh. The icon was made (via lmbossy's icon factory) after reading this post by rahirah and the subsequent comments.
