Do try to contain your excitement. The fact that comments had been failing silently for so long, and nobody seemed to notice and/or care (least of all me) is probably suggestive that it wasn’t really a problem that needed to be solved.

Nonetheless, it was easier to solve the problem than it was to just remove comments, and once or twice in the past I’ve had comments that were actually useful and insightful, so what the hell. They ought to work now.

If for some reason you get an error when you’re trying to comment (on an article that’s less than 90 days old), feel free to drop me an email.
