Comments are broken for now. D:

Comments are broken. I don’t know what’s wrong, but I suspect it might be something where the comment IDs are nearing 2 million. Long running blog + lots of spammers = big numeric IDs. Or it could be some problem with the database size.

I’ll poke at it more in detail when I have some time tomorrow or over the weekend. For now, if you really want to comment, I might recommend following me on Google+ where I’ve been cross-posting about the blog posts.

And, if anyone has any experience with WordPress and this particular error, let me know. The symptom is that submitting a comment seems to not do anything. I’ve disabled all the plugins and that did nothing. My preview plugin lets you preview the comment, but shows a comment ID that seems rather odd given that no new comments are coming in.

If you have any ideas, email me:

  1. So, looks like Akismet is the problem. Bleh. I’ve contacted support, but we’ll see how it goes.

    In the mean time, I’m using an older version which seems to be working fine so far. So, comments are on!

I value your comment and think the discussions are the best part of this blog. However, there's this scourge called comment spam, so I choose to moderate comments rather than giving filthy spammers any advantage.

If this is your first comment, it will be held for moderation and therefore will not show up immediately. I will approve your comment when I can, usually within a day. Comments should eventually be approved if not spam. If your comment doesn't show up and it wasn't spam, send me an email as the spam catchers might have caught it by accident.
