Widespread issues with comments proving difficult to solve Add to ...

For the past few weeks, we have been experiencing a range of issues with the commenting system on our site. These issues include:

- not being able to post comments

- not being able to see comments (or disappearing comments)

- not being able to use the thumbs up/thumbs down voting

These issues are affecting various browsers and operating systems and we’ve heard reports that they are sporadic (meaning functionality may be restored for periods of time, only to disappear again later).

We understand this is incredibly frustrating. Our developers are working on a solution, but it is proving a more difficult problem to fix than we would like. Unfortunately, we don’t have a solid timeline of when these problems will be resolved. As we continue to work on it, all we can ask is for your continued patience.

We will update this page when we have more information.
