To make this work you need to adjust the size of your window so you cannot see the footnotes at the bottom of the page. The whole idea is that when the user clicks on a footnote the screen scrolls until the reference is visible. If the reference is already on screen - because the window is big enough to show the source text and the footnote - then Internet Explorer won't bother scrolling. And Internet Explorer can't scroll anymore once its shown the last line of the file...there isn't any more to scroll to. You might also like to look at the pop-up tool tips example which seem better suited to web reading. You would need to combine them with conventional footnotes, though, as the pop-ups are invisible on a printed page.

The cost of identity deception to the information-seeking reader is potentially high. Misinformation, from poor nutritional advice to erroneous interpretations of drug-smuggling law, is easy to find on the net - and it is more likely to be believed when offered by one who is perceived to be an expert [Aronson 95]. The limited identity cues may make people accept at face value a writer's claims of credibility: it may take a long time - and a history of dubious postings - until people start to wonder about the actual knowledge on a self-proclaimed expert.
Providing affiliation and support is another important function of Usenet 2. Here, too, identity is central. The sense of shared community requires that the participants be sympathetic to the ideas around which the group is based; even if they disagree, there needs to be some fundamental common ground. Trust in the shared motivations and beliefs of the other participants - in other words, their social identity - is essential to the sense of community 3.
