So: We can get our replies on the Notification page, but we can't see them in context, in the comments. And thus can't reply.
If it looks like we are ignoring one another, we are, but for once it's not out of rudeness.
ETA: It's intermittent. McCoy's reply to this is gone from the post (MM—no, I can't help you with coping skills; I can barely walk without falling), but I can see sugarhill's and Lawny's comments.
