Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs

+1 This happened to me for a while, but I have since managed to post a comment. – Dominic Rodger Mar 12 '10 at 9:27

@Greg - MSO and SO are up to 6487 now. – Dominic Rodger Mar 12 '10 at 9:43
