Unable to open certain posts when signed in

I've been having a sporadic problem on this site for a while, figured I'd try to post a description.

On certain posts I am unable to see beyond an arbitary reply when I am logged in. The page just doesn't load past that point. I can log out and see the remaining replies, but when I am logged in I am unable to see beyond the whichever reply is showing this beahvior (and, since the reply space is beyond it, I can't reply myself either.)

This is presently happening with the "Regret character names?" and the first response, but I've also seen it a time or two in other threads over the years.

Very odd glitch, I haven't been able to work out what predicts whether a given thread will have this behavior, or what causes any given reply to be the 'last' one loaded.

Thats happened to me a couple times too. Very odd.

I think something like this has happened before and it was just a matter of waiting it out. I don't know if it had something to do with WordPress's maintanence system or what.

This has happened to me too, as well. But sporadically and without much in the way of letting me know what triggers it. In my case, it sometimes seems to happen when a post of mine is the most recent in a thread and then, if/when someone else posts, I can read the whole thread again.

Same here.

Ditto. It's not a common glitch, but it's happened to a lot of us.

For whatever reason, it only seems to occur when you're the last post on a thread, and will correct itself the moment someone else posts anything in the thread. So at least take comfort in knowing that as long as the glitch is active, nobody's posted anything new in the thread.

@TanaNari it was doing it to me on the Regretting Names thread before I'd even posted in it at all.
