Click to expand one post and get sent to that person's profile?

Not sure what's going on here. I've tried this in both Firefox and IE. If I click on a collapsed post (clicking on the poster's name that's visible), I get sent to that person's profile page rather than having that one post expand. So instead I try to click in the top right of the responder below (the "re: posterx" thing) and I still get sent over to that person's profile page.

Is it my computer or is something funky going on here?

  1. Clicking any user's name will send you to that user's page. Clicking anywhere on the collapsed post other than on a user's name will expand the post. Was this not the case before? It's possible that the links on those names were re-activated during the infrastructure upgrades.

      When I click on a user name in a collapsed post it opens the post. If I click on the name in an expanded post it sends me to the profile. Always has done.

        Ditto. That was the way it worked before. Now whenever I try to expand a collapsed post, I get shuttled over to the person's profile page.

        ETA: Wait, I think it may be fixed. I tried it and it seemed to work as usual. I'll try again on another post to be sure.

          Okay, it seems to be working normally for me now. If a post is collapsed and I click on the name, it expands the post. Yay.

          Maybe it was the earthquake. :)

            Yeah, maybe. Several things were screwy this morning. If I tried to reply to a post I didn't get a reply box, just got sent to the top of the page. And of course, I'm still not getting emails.
