I posted a reply in suggestions in the cmt,  and it doesn't show up.  Are negative comments being blocked now?  It didn't break any rules.

Is it possible that it's due to the high traffic on the site these last few days?  I've gotten a lot of error messages, like pages timing out.

I doubt it, I've read and am reading a ton of negative comments. Some people are even saying they'll abandon their accounts (because I guess that teaches the folks who stay a lesson? I don' know, I don't understand the why on that)  Doesn't seem like they're being blocked so I'll go out on a limb and say you aren't being blocked either.

Adrienne- I think that the system is just completely bogged down and overloaded at the moment. Sometimes a thread will show that new comments have been made by the number of replies and time stamp on the side, but the replies don't always show up when you click into that thread until later. The overload is making things act a bit glitchy. This too shall pass.

2000 on the site at same time seems to be the magic number where it's getting bogged down........as soon as the active users dropped below that, everything started moving fast again.
