    This is the thread:

    https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...school-kid-29-from-gun-advertisement.2108457/

    When I click on Post Reply, the three buttons there go grey for about 5 seconds, then turn blue again. But my reply isn't in the thread. The text I've written stays in the reply box.

    My reply doesn't have anything complicated in it. I've attached a screen shot.

    I have tried reloading the thread. I have tried closing and reopening the browser.

    I am able to reply everywhere else on MR that I've tried so far.

    I think that that particular thread might have been locked, without the 'padlock' symbol having appeared.

    The thread is open and you should be able to post there. I do notice there is a few second delay due to forum slowness, but I did a couple test posts and they worked.

    Can you try again?

    Nope, still have the same behavior. I click the Post Reply button, all three buttons turn grey for about 5 seconds, then turn blue and it is as if I never clicked the button.

    I am able to reply elsewhere, including elsewhere in PRSI.

    Anyway, it is certainly not important. Just a technical curiosity.

    I've asked the admins to look at this.

    It seems to be a bug in the forum software, with no reason that thread should be different than other threads.

    Would you try posting in the thread using another web browser, please?

    It worked using Edge.

    Odd.

    Perhaps clearing cookies for macrumors.com (and logging in again) will cure the symptom in your original web browser, although it still won't explain it.
