Are all three of you experiencing the same issue?
What browser are you using when the issue occurs and does it happen regardless of whether you click 'shout' or hit enter?

Ad the other one I have had is, you post something and it works.  You then go into a topic read posts etc. go back to main page, and the post has gone.  So have to repost comment.  :-\

IE7 I think . . . .doesn't make a difference whether I click shout or hit enter . . . I've known me to add another comment and then one appear after mine which was posted before it, and then the same comment to appear again . . seems to hang every now and then

Ash - it will do that if you press "back" to unread posts, as opposed to clicking on "view unread posts"

I click the forum tab at the top of the page, and it does it  :juggle:

Tested working in Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera. Recommend you restart your system and see if it helps.
