Help!

I click on a link...back to the splash screen.
Scroll to the bottom...click continue to BGG.
Read link.
Click on something else...back to the splash screen.

Sigh. PLEASE can somebody end my torment?

(and sorry if I am being dense)

Can you try clearing your cookies and see if that helps (assuming you can ready this).

I can navigate BGG as normal, provided I go through the splash screen between EVERY click. It is driving me crazy.

Will have a look at the cookies. Thanks, Aldie.

I suggest writing to the U.S. congress, explaining your difficulties and how important a free internet is to you.

Tried Wikipedia recently? There's only one entry that you can get to. You can link to it from the SOPA splash screen.

A 24 hour period of inconvenience is probably not to much to suffer through to raise awareness.

Actually this happened all day today at work. I'm using IE 9 with Vista at work. Here at home with IE 8 on XP and it was fine.

*grumbles* Amen to that.

I suggest we recycle Congress to save the earth this year.

But I have contacted my representatives. For anybody paying attention, a co-sponsor of one version of the bill (Blunt from Missouri) has retracted his support, so that's something.

News reports were that they were generally backing off. But they'll try again. And the Internet...will be watching... goo
