Not a "Reply" Option for Every Post....

When someone replies to my comment on a thread, and I want to post a reply in response, I find no "Reply" option at the bottom of their post. How do I reply to their reply?

    Especially without a quote function, I do think the sub-level limitations will be a major problem (especially, obviously, on long threads).

      There is a limitation of 5 sub-levels for any thread branch, when the last reply posting has reached that theshold, the Reply link is no longer available for that branch.

      As a work-around you can add your reply to the first post (the topic starter) in a thread, that will start another branch, however, you may want to indicate in your posting which reply below that you are responding to.

        Can this eventually be changed, or the thread will become disjointed IMO. (Because your reply will be read *above* what you are replying to!)
