Were you logged-in at that time?
I think it depends on how the buttons look. If the buttons are missing, and replaced with a button, then it could have been a moderator that temporally locked it. If the buttons are the standard buttons, but faded, and not clickable, then Devaka is correct, that you are not logged in.
It wasn't a locked button, it was the regular buttons. It just happened again. One thing I noticed is that when I log in the navigation at the top of the page doesn't show me as logged in. If I reload the page it shows me as logged in. Then when I go to other pages it dose the same thing, first it shows me as not logged in then when I refresh it shows me as logged in.
I think it has to do with the company network. I tried the forums from work through a different network and I did not have any problems. I wonder if it's because on the regular network I connect through a proxy.
