Conversations I mentioned this in another topic, but think the problem deserves it's own discussion. Since the new OSNews site launch, I have been unable to vote for comments. It does work occationally, once a day on average, but I cannot find any pattern or cause for the problem.

It appears as if the "+" and "-" buttons aren't working most of the time, or they're simply .gif images. My cursor changes as the mouse scrolls over, but clicking on them does nothing.

I have 19 votes remaining currently, the browser IE6, and I've enabled cookies. If anyone can figure this out...

Thanks for the 'smart' answer. Never had a problem with any other websites though.

It was a little nasty, yes. Comes from 20 years of supporting superior technologies that were blocked by the ubiquity of Microsoft products.

Of course you don't have problems with many sites when using the broken browser that most of the sheep use. Web designers and developers bend over backwards, wasting untold resources, to accommodate it. And sometimes *only* it.
