    I don't know if this is the same issue, but one of my followers said they haven’t been able to comment on any of my blog posts, or anyone else's posts who do not have “wordpress” in the url (his blog is not a site, btw).

    I checked out the link from timethief but it doesn't answer why I have to use wordpress.COM to comment. I don't use the .COM blog/account anymore, I'm on .ORG and that's how I want to comment.
