It still seems to be painfully simple to crash the forums simply by posting something.

I just started a thread in the VC++ Programming forum. After I pressed Submit New Post my browser (Safari) just hung with nothing happening. After a couple of minutes I closed my browser and tried to access the forums using a new instance of Safari. I don't know if the whole forum had crashed but it was a further 5-6 minutes before I could access the forums again. This is at least the 2nd time this has happened to me.
