Unfortunately, that didn't do it for me.  I still cannot send comments regardless of the thread view.  For example, I have tried more than 20 times in different ways to comment Here to no avail. I also tried reloading the page multiple times.

It failed the first time for me, but after a regress it worked. Got to love random bugs!

Yeah started failing again for me yesterday. I just do the old start typing, ah ###### it, no ones gives an arse about opinions on the net, delete and move on.

Happened to me too, changing the default view of comments let me add the comment.

Unfortunately that didn't seem to work for me. I will try the next time it happens again though and will report back.

Are you by chance running PfblockerNG? I had to unblock 1 domain on that before I could comment on the software section.

Hi, 

 

No, I'm not using such software, I only use uBlock Origin. I also have a feeling this has probably something to do with anti-spam and security features somewhere.

I have asked @DaveLeggand @Redmakto chime in here, as they will have to see what is causing it.

Any updates? I'm still unable to comment on any article which doesn't already have at least a comment already. 😢

I've changed something which will hopefully resolve this, could you let me know if you continue to experience this issue.

Since this comment, I have not had any issues and the first attempt has been successful. The last one I did prior to your change still required me to refresh the page once to be able to comment.

Thanks soooooo much!! I'll let  you know if it happens again. Much appreciated @DaveLegg!

 

PS: BTW I was just able to post on an article with no previous comments for the first time without any issues. It seems your change worked!
