Posting Comments on PLoS One
Okay that's it for me. This isn't worth the trouble.
I tried posting a response on the thread "Is "prokaryotic" an outdated term?" over on PloS One and after getting bumped around to several different webpages I finally ended up with what looked like a response form. I typed in an extremely erudite and well-reasoned response that would have blown everyone out of the water then hit the "Post" button. (There's no "Preview" option on PLoS One. This is highly discriminatory—it works against people like me who need to proofread everything before posting.)
The result of trying to post a comment is the error message shown below. I can close the error window and hit "Post" again but this produces an endless cycle of error messages.
I'm not an complete idiot when it comes to using computers. I'm not going to waste any more time trying to post comments on the PLoS Website.
