iPad: Reply UI should not appear if not logged in - or take you to log in screen

I've been caught by this a couple of times now. (Not realizing that I am not logged in...) The site gives you the appearance that I am able to reply to a post. Click Reply and the post poofs away into the ether. At that time I realize that I am not logged in. The site should not allow that to happen. Or - it should take you to the log in screen, allow you to log in, and post the reply as usual.
This happens to me all the time - and I am on a desktop using IE 10 with all current updates.
It is incredibly annoying to bring up my hometown board, spend minutes kindly answering a question, and then POOF all gone.
I usually swear I'll never come back. I am fast approaching that point.
