If you can’t leave a comment…

… eh, the “please leave a comment” thing is probably overdone. Still if you’ve got ideas about what I’ve broken along the way to upgrading to MT 3.2, I’d love to hear them. I don’t have any problem commenting, and at least a few human spambots have been able to comment since I upgraded, but at least three people have now told me that they just keep getting told “Please preview your modified entry before posting it.” when they already did.

In theory, that should mean that something’s different between the SHA1 hash of the comment text, the entry id, the author name, the author URL, and the subject that were posted for the preview, and those same things that were posted hoping to actually submit the comment (minus the IP address that I just pulled out, in case that was it). In fact, since none of that’s changing, I must have screwed something up. Works for me, so I guess you can always just email your comment (anything at this domain, I’m still foolish enough to use a catch-all), and I’ll post it, since my form still likes me.

At least one thing pleases me about this: this post strikes me as perfectly appropriate for what MT tells me is my 1000th entry. No sense not being rambling and nonsensical just for a round number.

And, it’s still willing to let me comment. Grr. Let other people comment too, damn you!

Me, I can reply to comments, and I can change the default subject. You? Apparently not.

D’oh. Maybe I didn’t ever try posting a link, since I’m stuck right now trying to post a comment including a link to the person who had to email it to me. I wonder if it’s doing something nasty to the link, like nofollowing it, in the process of hashing the comment body…
