Comment problems

Published: November 12, 2006. Filed under: Meta.

So it seems that something’s broken somewhere in all the hacks I do to the comment system, because every attempt to submit a comment is now met with AkismetError: missing required argument.

I’m working on it.

Update: commenting still won’t work, but apparently I’m not the only person running into this bug. I can’t find any notes regarding changes to the Akismet API, but that feels like the most obvious reason why this is suddenly happening.

Updated again: and just like that, things are working again. Judging from a couple other people who told me they had the same problem, I think Akismet itself was borked for a while today.
