Unexpected behavior after login
After login, clicking on "My Posts" link causes the page to constantly reload

After logging into the site, without allowing the site to remember my login, I click on the "My Posts" link and get taken to which reloads about every 10 seconds. While it's reloading, it looks like I have been logged out (As the Login and Register links are back), but the banner at the top of the page says "You have been logged in as <Username> using your Questions Network account."

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Browse to
  2. Uncheck "Remember Me?" if it is checked.
  3. Enter username and password in respective fields.
  4. Click "Log In" button.
  5. Upon logging in, click the "My Posts" button.

Observed Behavior:
"My Posts" page reloads about every 10 seconds with a floating banner at the top of the page that says "You have been logged in as <Username> using your Questions Network account." If you click on any of the links back to the forums, the behavior stops.

Expected Behavior:
Upon clicking the "My Posts" button, I expect to still show as logged in with just the last 50 posts I've made showing in summarized form.

I'm not able to reproduce this, but do note that unchecking the "Remember Me" box can cause some logout issues, especially if you browsing though a proxy or cache. Have you tried removing all LQ related cookies and then trying again?

I have also experienced this.
It is very difficult to reproduce because it usually doesn't happen but it can suddenly do it repeatedly.
