Link Misdirection

Hello Monks,

Lately, I've noticed that when I vote on a given node or nodes, I am sometimes redirected back to The Monastery Gates and my votes are not recorded rather than back to that node itself. This doesn't happen all the time and the first few times it happened, I simply ignored it. However, it now happens to me every 4th or 5th time I vote.

I was just wondering if anyone knew what the cause of this is. I don't know if it is due to my browser (I generally use IE 5.5) or if there is something wrong with the site itself. Has anyone else noticed this phenomenon? Is there a way to fix it?

    Sherlock, I have noticed this happening only when I use (the few times I do...) IE 5+ ... and it used to happen a lot when I voted to me too. It even seemed to happen after I would travel to about 4 different nodes, for some reason.

    I am not sure what causes this, but my guess is it has to do with the browser-side, rather than pm.org ... because when I use Opera, it never happens, so that would lead me to the obvious conclusion that IE is to blame for this phenomenon.

    Hope this info helps, because Opera seems to fix this problem, (but posting with code tags isn't good in Opera *yet*, so I would use something different, perhaps Mozilla?)
