why does this happen?

i have it set up so that if i make a reply post – it will email me when someone else posts after me. if i go to the post through the email however, not only is my post not there but a new one isn’t either. why does that happen? it seems like if i’ve received an email about it then it should be there.

any answers out there from the experts?

The only possibility I can think of is that your ISP (lemme guess… AOL?) is keeping a cached copy of the page, and when you go back to look at it again, it’s lazy and just shows you the old copy, instead of actually going and getting the new copy. Pressing “reload” or shift+reload should get you the up-to-date copy. I think.
