IA forums now do “inline reply”

One thing that’s driven me a bit kooky is every time I “reply to this post” in the Internet Archive forums, it drives the browser to a new form page with no context/content of the post I was just looking at!

Very pleased to finally with some coffee just make it javascript “inline reply” right at the post you are looking at, so you can reference everything you were just thinking about and how you were going to reply.

It gracefully degrades to prior behaviour for those without javascript enabled.

[The prior behaviour:
Ooh, nice post and points.
But I gotta get in there with some comments… OK, I have some ideas ready to type…
[reply button]
Say, is that Jane’s Addiction old stuff coming up on random play, I like this…
oh crap, what was I going to say again?
what post was I looking at again?
Say, is that a lower-than-normal plane flying outside?
