Comment Delays

It's not just you: Comments appear to be disappearing from the page after you post them. They're not being lost, I promise. What's happening is that comments are being registered in Disqus' system, but then there's a lag time in their being posted to the page.

It only looks like they're disappearing because they're visible to the author right after posting. They do, however, show up on the page once Disqus shoots them out of the database, and there's about a 10-minute lag time at the moment.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience. But be assured your comments are there! They're just taking a few minutes to post to the page.

Disqus knows we're having an issue, and they thought they'd fixed it over the weekend, but we're still having the same problem. Hopefully it'll get fixed soon.
