so that was a truly terrible idea; i bet they're going to keep it

Hey, does LJ know someone hacked them and completely destroyed usability and readability on vast, vast tracts of LJ territory and the entire reason most of us like to be there; aka the comment page? It's hideous! The hacker is obviously evil and possibly made of snails, due to their myopia that would cause them to think this hideousness is okay.

Fine, yes, I knew this was coming, but holy mother of God what snail-possessed programmer thought that was a good idea?

I'm saying, we can go with a.) complete loss of interest in usability of their site or....b.) evil snail people. Who at least have an excuse not to care if the site is usable; they're snails, how many comments can you make using your amorphous lump to press one key at a time? Also, I suspect they have to replace their keyboards regularly.

ETA: For LJ users, in case LJ's a little behind in fixing this obviously horrific comedown from a truly terrible acid trip (assuming the evil snail theory doesn't pan out), DW has free account creation so you don't even need a code!

ETA HELP ME: Um, okay, can anyone tell why I can't reply to comments in my own LJ? Or comment to my own entry?

To apetslife - yes I wrote text in the box but the button doesn't enable in my LJ.

Update to that: apparently, unchecking "View comment pages from my Friends page in my own style" on My Account Settings was the problem. Because that, I'm sure, is supposed to make sense. You may or may not have to uncheck "View all journals and communities in my own style", which is directly above it as well.

I'm going to have to actually change my style. I do not like this at all.

New Update: Annnnd it stopped working again right after I replied to someone and the reply ended up as a not-reply but regular comment.


Update Yet Again to Comment/Reply Issue: Clicking on Insert Link and entering something and adding it enables the Post button. It has been relatively consistent on the last three comments I made, two in lj-release because while I have never done the enraged online mob thing before, by God, it's time.
