  2. Everything seems to be fine on your latest post. Would you please give us a link to the post or page with the problem?

  3. It is happening on my latest post "A Different Campaign" as we speak.

    Your comment was as follows:
    “It is well documented that the POTUS paid millions in attorney fees”.
    I think that was where you lost me (and others). No one was asking for his transcripts, just a clarification on your statement.
    As we’ve strayed a little far afield from the original post and into some murky waters, I’d be glad to call it a draw. We can all shake hands and get beyond this very touchy topic. Nothing to be gained from trying to win or lose this one.

    Well, as Harvard is a private instituition, I don’t think anyone can *legally* get Obama’s records other than Obama. Someone could hack Harvard and post them if they wanted, or pay someone in a clerical capacity at Harvard to get copies, but as far as I know,
    they’re only Obama’s to release. So… Obama paying someone *not* to release them doesn’t make sense, in that they would have been obtained illegally and (if I were Obama) I would have them charged with extortion; not pay them off.

    Do you think that Harvard University is just standing by and allowing him to lie about being there? And that his name on the law review – thousands of copies that were printed – were put there falsely? And that everyone who was at Harvard with him is going along with this?
    If you accept the fact that he went to Harvard Law School, then you have to acknowledge that there are records.

    That is correct, Viewer 5. I just posted about the federal law that prohibits release of records without the student’s permission. Unless you want to believe that the law was enacted in 1974 because Congress knew that 35 years later, a kid named Barack Obama was going to run for president and that he was going to lie about going to Harvard Law School, so they enacted a law that prohibited the university from releasing student records without the student’s permission.

    I do not accept a draw. It is your blog and you can shut me down, but you can’t call it a draw on my behalf. There are plenty of legitimate things to criticize the President – any president about – but accusing him of lying about his education, birth, nationality, etc. – is just unacceptable if you have no evidence.

    Hey ya’ll-chill! I never dreamed that would cause a firestorm. Google Obama’s scholastic records and read. I never said and I repeat NEVER said the man didn’t attend Harvard. I only said his scholastic records have not been released. You have inferred so much that it’s getting ridiculous. My point is that they have not been released not that they don’t exist. The more important points are being overlooked. Try to forgive me for mentioning anything about his school records.
    Given half a chance we can all learn from one another. I’ve learned alot today from your posts.

    I’m not going to shut anyone down. Unless someone draws blood, everyone is pretty safe on the Farm. I just can’t see the point in continuing when a debate breaks down and there is no finish line in sight.

    No, catnapper. You claimed that he spent millions in attorneys fees to keep his academic records out of public view. Now that you have learned that this makes no sense, because by law, they can’t be made public without his permission, you aren’t backing down. I don’t have to infer what you meant. You said it plain as day – he spent millions in attorneys fees to prevent their release. Can you admit you were wrong?

    And why does anyone need to see his grades? He graduated from Harvard Law School. He was the president of the law review. That’s something that 99.99% of the population could never achieve. What difference does it make what his GPA was? If you are already stellar, do you have to be the most stellar to be..what…qualified to be president? If so, then very few people could ever run for president. So why do you feel you need to see his grades?

    Just some headstrong fillies taking the bit in their teeth, eh, Empress? Not fun to be in the saddle at the time, but they’ll release it eventually. Yehaw!

    This is why I prefer bitless bridles. Makes for a softer mouth. :)

  4. These actually aren't being left as replies. Each one is being left as a new comment.

    Make sure that you actually click the "Reply" link under the comment you intent to reply to.

  5. I respectfully disagree - these are regular commenters who know how to press a reply button. I'm hard pressed to believe that all of them are making the same error at the same time - including myself.

  6. Hm, you're right. I just tested myself, same problem. Did this all start suddenly today?

  7. About 3 hours ago.

  8. A commenter asked that her comment be deleted a couple of hours ago - which I did. Could that have triggered a problem?

  9. I was able to reproduce this on my own blog, but not anymore. I'm hoping it was a temporary glitch.

    Would you please try again?

  10. OK, BRB

  11. Still not working. See last comment from the design diva.

  12. Are we making any progress yet? This is more than frustrating.

  13. empressofaiken

    I don't know if it helps at all, but the reply does work on older posts. This one seems to be posing a problem.

  14. empressofaiken

    This is still occurring on the post "A Different Campaign". The problem seems to begin at about 5:30PM on 4/11 - those who post replies before this time are fine. Anything after that time is still appearing as a new comment and not a reply. Can you please let me know when this will be resolved?

  15. Hm, I wonder if you have hit sort of a maximum for that page.

    Try checking the "Break comments into pages" box at Settings -> Discussion and set it for 25 comments.

    Does that make any change?

  16. empressofaiken

    No, it made no difference. The only replies being allowed are in response to comments made before 5:30PM EST on Wednesday, 4/11.

  17. Ok, no good then. We're still looking into this.

  18. empressofaiken

    Thank you :)

  19. Not a problem, we'll let you know as soon as we've figured it out.

  20. Ok, you're all fixed up now. We're not entirely sure what caused this weirdness, but un-setting and re-setting the threaded comments option at Settings -> Discussion seems to have done the trick.

  21. empressofaiken

    Thank you - it does appear to be working for Thursday's post. :)

  22. You're welcome!
