Why can't I paste into the message field?

So...  I've located an article I want to talk about.  It has a URL that is not easily remembered.  (How many zeroes was that again?)  So, I copy it from the address bar, click on Discuss, click on New Topic, and try to paste my complicated URL into the Message box.

No dice.  Nothing gets pasted.

Hmm, maybe it's my browser.  Maybe the site can't handle Opera.  I'll switch to IE, since this is a MS-friendly site.

Still no dice.

Oh well, off to type in the URL by hand...

Ctrl C, Ctrl V.

No problem for me.

Pasting into the Message: box on the Reply to page works for me in Opera 6.
Seems like too basic a thing to be browser sensitive.
