The toothbrush was invented in England... If it was invented anywhere else... It would have been called a Teethbrush.

Well, this is a tricky situation. I'm going to have to look into it more but I have a few ideas. If I post what I plan to do, the Harry Potter Fanclub might read it so I'm just going to keep it to myself for now... I'll probably work on it more in the morning.

The MN Culture Club stole their song apparently and made a "Twins Anthem" out of it.

You have to be ****ing kidding me.

They can keep that awful song. Who the hell are those dolts in the video anyway?

Ha, did those yellow-toothed morons realize they brought more publicity to the rip-off song by coming here? I'd never heard of it and likely would never have even bothered opening up a link to see it if they hadn't gotten their knickers in a bunch.

Anyone check out the Leeds website to see if they've tried to get a "We're going to win Leeds" song started? Or do they just use a grocery store bulliten board as their community forum?

If this was my favorite team's anthem, I'd leave it in the front yard with a sign marked "Free, or do I have to pay you take it?"

That's pretty much how I feel about it.

Why on earth would anybody think it's okay to change the "Win Twins" song in the first place? That thing is so awesomely corny and 1960s-ish that it should stick around forever.

And it certainly shouldn't be replaced with a song we jacked from a Leeds football club. That is the very definition of weak. WTF, Springboard guy. WTF. I can't express the amount of facepalm that guy deserves right now.

You didn't have to delete everything they posted. For instance, I thought their tits thread had some value.

Are the shortcuts to latest comments from the home page and 'what's new' list ever going to work again? Makes navigation a problem.

What browser are you using? Also, clear your browser cache. The latest comments and What's New? work fine for me.

Doesn't take me to the comment section on some links like:

Your most recent post to Twins To Sign RHP Kevin Correia (http://twinsdaily.com/1243-twins-sign-rhp-kevin-correia.html) in Twins (http://twinsdaily.com/section/113-minnesota-twins.html)
and below is the "see more" link to the comment section.

Upon clicking the link, it takes me to the story, but only one comment, not the hundreds? of comments that actually exist. This appears to be the problem with any story that is on the home page/front page. I've heard others with the same issue. Don't think it's a cache problem as other links in forums work when "see more" links are clicked. If it's just me, I'll just deal with it. Thanks for your effort.

No, it's definitely not only you. I've heard other complaints about it but I can't get it to replicate unless I log out of the site. Is that what's happening to you? Are you logged out when you don't see the comments?

I don't think it's an acceptable problem either way, just trying to narrow down the issue here.

I made FANTASTIC Comments and I can't re-read them and pat myself on the back.
Running an intentionally out of date Firefox browser and logged in.
It also replicated on my mobile which is the standard browser that comes with an Android phone.

Yep, it has to do with stories/blogs/whatever on the home page. Clicking "comments" right from the home page story does the same. Poo.

Booo you are just like my developer at work. He never tests with IE and when it has problems he says "who the hell still uses IE?"

My answer...OUR CUSTOMERS

IE is a piece of ****. It's awful. I'd test it but on my current machine, I don't have Windows installed. Formatted a few months back and didn't reinstall VirtualBox with Windows. I'll get around to it someday.

Next revision of TD is going to drop support for IE8. I've been writing around that piece of **** for a half decade now. I've had enough of it. Microsoft browsers are truly the worst. There's no excuse for using them unless you're forced to do it by an incompetent IT department at work.

When I write a website, a good 20% of my time is spend re-writing pieces of it to work in IE. Virtually 0% of that time is spent doing the same for Chrome. Maybe 1-2% is spent doing the same for Firefox. One-freakin-fifth of my time. For ONE browser.

Don't use IE, folks. It's terrible. It's really the absolute biggest piece of junk on the market. Even IE9. While it's much better than its predecessors, it's still at least 18 months behind Chrome and Firefox.

And another followup: the problem is now occurring for me in Parker's "All The Way May" article. Clicking on it claims to have only 1 comment, whereas I entered a second comment which I saw show up before I closed the window earlier. Interestingly, if I use the Search tool on the word "Trevor", this thread shows up twice, one claiming 6 comments and one claiming 0. If I click on the one showing 0, I do indeed see a version of the article with 0 comments; if I click on the one claiming 6, I'm back to seeing a version with only 1.

I tried to include a screen shot but the reply system said that was too many bytes.
