OK, now that the connectivity issue is solved, on to the next issue: some people are randomly getting "uh, which article do you wanna read" when trying to post comments. I know generally what is causing this, but not specifically (wow, can I vague that up a little?)... but I THINK this can only happen if you're using Firefox and an as-of-yet-unknown combination of plugins. If you can reproduce it in Safari or IE or Opera I would love to hear about it because that'll help me narrow down where the issue is.

(The issue has to do with the form variable name for the comments box changing a few weeks back -- something somewhere is trying to put comment text in the old variable AND the new one. I've checked the source for our own quote buttons and for Farky, Farkit, Farkode, and can't find any problems in any of them yet.)

UPDATE: Seems to be people using an older version of FarkIt.
