 I couldn't find any information on what browsers BuddyPress supports, so I
 don't know if this is a valid bug or not, but I'll report it anyway.

 1. Use IE8, with BuddyPress and the bp-default theme activated
 2. Visit a group
 3. Type something into the "what's new" box
 4. Click "Post Update"
 5. IE8 reports an error on line 1502 of global.js and the post is not

 To fix I simply added this polyfill: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-
