Hopefully, more of the former, less of the latter.
I've gotten feedback from two people in the last 24 hours regarding their comments not showing up (which, incidentally, is a landmark amount of non-post related feedback).
I did a couple of test comments myself and they seem to be working. Just to be on the safe side, I disabled the word verification setting. I had been getting some spam comments, so I turned that on. I guess we'll see how it goes.
