When I click in a text box, I expect a cursor which I can use to select the text, then copy and paste. Right now this is not the behavior of imgur. Right now imgur briefly highlights and then un-highlights the text. It forces me to click the stupid button to the left of the text I want to copy in order to have it 'help' me copy it.

Imgur has broken the contract between me, my computer, and the apps I use. This change alone is driving me away from the service.
