Tell me about it. Reload the page, and you should be fine. And OT, the only reason I logged out in the first place was 'cause the Home Cooking board ceased to display the "new" icon. This problem persists.
Reloading/restarting/different browser did not get rid of nasty ad (makes me want to avoid their product ... effective advertising!) I just closed my eyes and started typing ... it worked on the umpteenth try.
