"Books are to be called for and supplied on the assumption that the process of reading is not a half-sleep; but in the highest sense an exercise, a gymnastic struggle; that the reader is to do something for himself."
When you say "posting thank yous", do you mean posting a reply in the forums, or sending a Private Message to the specific person? And are the problems in the form of error messages from the site, or are you having trouble finding the right forum thread or BCer bookshelf in the first place? [If you're getting error messages from the site, try again a little later. And if you're trying to post in the forums, an error message may not mean that your post didn't go through, so look for it before trying to post again.]
