Hi, why am I able to start a new thread but when I try to "post a response" within a current thread I get the message that the exchange is not currently available? Thanks, Laurie

At one point, I think I read that an expert can only reply if their name is somewhere in the thread, or something like that. I don't know exactly how it works. I will put a response including your name in the top discussion (title: "Doctor..."), and then perhaps you can see if you are then allowed to respond.

If that doesn't work, maybe the moderators have to unlock discussions for the experts?

Hi Laurie,

I see you've since been able to post at least one response so it's all working as it should.

When you encounter that error message after posting a reply, just try refreshing your browser. Often your response is actually there after all. :-)

You can always write to me with any more questions you have.
