It's taking a long time to resolve and seems to be fairly random. If it's to do with my server blocking/filtering stuff, how come some of my comments get posted without difficulty on blogs I normally leave comments on less frequently? While on the blogs I leave comments on most days, the following happens.
It’s possible to comment but only after going all around the houses to do so. This involves linking to blogs via Reader on my site. Entering the comment in the box on the sites, highlighting the comment and doing Control+C, as I know it will be dumped on the first attempt. Then I’m asked to sign in to WP again to make my comment, so I sign in and send the comment and am rewarded by the words “Sorry, this comment could not be posted”, and “WordPress>Error” on my tab button above. So I close the site, go back to Reader, follow the link to the same blog and, Voila! I can post the comment.
This really isn't time efficient. My ISP is Aol. Is this on your list of problem servers?
Still trying to be patient, but blogging is meant to be a pleasure not a stress.
