Apparently Netscape has a problem with very deep unordered lists, which causes it to freeze in the middle of loading the Forum with a very long thread. This seems to occur around 16 levels deep.
Unfortunately, I have yet to come up with a good technical solution for this problem. I've just been pruning threads manually. I'm thinking of making threads top out at a certain level, to stop the freezing, but that will require a lot of digging through the Perl script.
Until I implement this change, I'd appreciate it if you'd keep this limitation in mind, and start a new thread when the one you're replying to is getting dangerously close to the limit.
If Netscape freezes on the Forum and you simply must get your fix, try Internet Explorer. It doesn't seem to have this problem.
