Random Back-Door LJ Bug Report

Am I supposed to be able to reply to a comment from the email when using Apple Mail (4.1.1076) on OS X Snow Leopard (10.6.1)? 'Cause it consistently doesn't work for me.

No, you can't reply to a comment via email.

That honestly makes no sense whatsoever to me.

I'm expressing my annoyance with the world-at-large's inattention to my special needs and your snide and uncompassionate support of the world's attitude.

Okay, here's a good example of why communicating on Teh Intrawebs sucks.

Just to clarify: What honestly makes no sense to me is the fact that you're not able to LJ comments. Sorry if you mistook my words. If on the other hand, you knew what I meant and your above reply was meant as a snark, bravo!

I did mistake your meaning but I will certainly accept your praise, as well.

I'm not sure why the Apple mailer doesn't work; the LJ message seems to indicate it has something to do with the way that the mailer processes HTTP. I imagine that some insignificant number of LJ users actually use the Apple mailer and that Henry and co. have much bigger fish to fry. If I really cared, I could go get Thunderbird (a mailer by the same group that does Firefox) and that it would work as expected.

I shake my tiny fist again.

I guess it's almost as easy to just click one of the "view" links and reply at the LJ site, but it just seems weird they've never worked on it. I mean, there must be a couple of Mac guys working there who have noticed it's an issue and would want the Mac-using LJ users to have the same experience PC users do. Of course, I get the impression there are like two total full-time employees at LJ these days, so who knows?

PS: FWIW, if you think I'm being rude or mean, please don't hesitate to ask me about it. As was the case above, I just wasn't as clear as I should have been. I aim to be very respectful talking with you online even if we disagree.

The devs at LJ are pc-based... And I don't remember this being an issue so it might be related to the recent Apple OS upgrade. And as I noted, I do have options, so it's not like Mac users are left out in the cold. Also, I would suggest (and LJ would probably agree) that this is really anissue with the Apple mailer rather than LJ.

I was just kidding about you being uncompassionate. I enjoy our exchanges even when they are tense... Which they haven't been in years.

Hey, it doesn't work from Thunderbird, either... What gives? Same error, by the way.

What exactly are you doing? You get an email saying someone commented on something and then you...

This would probably be easier to discuss over IM
