Not sure what's happening at the moment. The site isn't allowing me to put the link for the story where it belongs. I keep getting an error message, "Error writing story to Topix server".(?)

Crossing my fingers that this link will function when it appears on your screens.

This is strange. According to the counter on the forum page, there are only three comments here, but I see four, including one that provides the link to this story that has given me nothing but trouble. Can anyone else see it?

There should now be a post #10 with a link to Gay Star News. I see it, does anyone else?

Your post with the link has been censored. Are you posting links to malicious sites?

It's the strangest thing. I tried putting it where it belongs on the posted story and all I get is an error message. I've tried posting it twice here and I don't even get a warning, either time, it just shows as having been posted and even assigned a post #, the link even functions on both posts. But neither post is on the forum counter and no one sees them but me. I've even used this same site as recently as yesterday, on the post about the Russian football players. That one works fine.

Go to the home page, the the article that's causing me fits is the 7th one from the top in the center column.

I sent bug reports on the link not

It's about time, but they haven't responded to my reports of the problem happening in the first place. According to the counter on the forum page, yours was the 15th comment on the thread, but I see 16 and guessing it's post #10 where I repeated the link from #3 that no one can see yet, but me.

I can't understand how this could happen at BOA. The article didn't say where the branch was located, but perhaps someone at headquarters got a little caught up in the home state's recent constitutional amendment. I've taken out mortgages with my partner for 25 years ,now, and never had a banker bat an eye.

The only one of the five I see is #10, which is mine and it repeats the link in #3. They still haven't sent any sort of replies to the multiple bug reports I sent about this and they never did add the link to the article itself and that was reported first.
