It doesnt always work though - I mostly post from my phone, but it doesnt show up for mine... not sure why or why not.

Do you use a smart phone?  It showed up for me when I posted from a non-smart phone, from the mobile site (I think that's what happens with Blackberries, too), but now that I have a smart phone, I get the regular site and it registers posts as if they're coming from a computer.

There's a mobile site?  Is the URL something like m.etiquettehell.com?

There's some long and complicated url that non-smartphones automatically divert to.  It's just text on a white background, no pictures, no signatures, just posts.  It's linked to somewhere on the forum, but I don't know where.  It seems to be a part of the sms forum software, because I've seen other sms sites with the same mobile site setup.

Hmmm, my smartphone doesnt do that. I go to the full site.  I wonder why?

Because it's a smart phone :)  it's the non-smart phones with more limited internet that divert to the mobile site.

Okay..I can get to the mobile site and do read on there a lot.  However, I cannot for the life of me figure out how to post from my phone or reply!!  I just don't see the option.  Am I just slow?  What am I missing?  (I have a Blackberry Curve 2)

Celtic, I'm not entirely sure if this is the same on the Blackberry, but usually on the mobile site, you just scroll down to the bottom of the page, under "message index" and "next page" and the 'reply' button is there :). Hope this helps.
