The WSJ forum software is busted, it won't scroll beyond page 5, at least using Firefox on a Mac.

Most of the posts on this thread have been split off into a new thread "You used what??" on the "Engineering & Technology" forum (link).

Yes, I posted around page 12, but as you say, nothing past page 4.

Not only is the paging still broken, you can't get around it by reversing the order; the later pages come up but are blank. As I wrote earlier, which was removed:

[T]he comments on the web pages past 4 do not display at all, even if you reverse the order to "newest first" to try to retrieve the lastest ones.

I notified the wsj through their contacts page but who knows if they will ever notice it or get to it.

I guess that means you can't see your own comment once it's posted, nor can anyone else. Too bad. For me there were also four pages of comments -- sort of. There were only two comments on the fourth page.

It's likely some data corruption causing the problem. There are lots of great comments up to that point, however!
