Sorry to be such a noobs, but...

What does the "reply" icon at the end of a post actually do? I can't figure it out. As far as I can see, it doesn't do anything. Obviously, I'm missing something.

Also, why do new posts often appear sandwiched between old posts? Sometimes I get lost trying to figure out who and what the post is replying to.

Again, apologies for not getting how this forum works. Please explain.
Tom

The Reply button will put a

The Reply button will put a post under the post where you clicked it. Keep in mind that your reply may be right under or well below the the post to which you are replying depending on how many others made a reply to it before you.

This is how newer posts seem to land in the middle of a string.

It is a different format for a forum than you might be used to.

Thanks!

Thanks!

I'm trying to sort this out.

Yes, it's very different from any format I've used in years.

This doesn't seem to always be the case.
I clicked reply under a post from Whitefire13, but it keeps coming up as a reply to a different poster. And I can't even delete it. My account doesn't have access.

I don't understand AR. Perhaps I'm just not a good fit here.

"The Reply button will put a post under the post where you clicked it."

Not always.

When I tried to respond to WhiteFire13, all my replies were posted under my "one and only" warning for sexism. I tried twice. I found I couldn't even delete the misperception that I was replying to that post. My account doesn't have access.

This is definitely something

This is definitely something I'm seeing for the first time myself. Quite annoying, frankly.

I'm a gay atheist who is

I'm a gay atheist who is socially rather conservative, but considers Trump the worst president in modern history.

I live in semi-rural Indiana, near Mike Pence's home. I'm accustomed to sorting out my welcome amongst people who say that I'm welcome, but don't mean it.

What? You mean Christians?

The user interface here is,

The user interface here is, well bad. There is no way to sugar coat it. If you find it strange, there is nothing wrong with you: it is strange.

There is a currently stalled project to make big improvements. Hopefully it will come to some kind of fruition.
