Comments Broken ... and Fixed!

Just FYI - our comments were apparently down recently, but I fixed them just as I became aware of the problem (this afternoon). I have no idea when they went down, but the problem was quite simple once I figured it out:

Somehow a blacklist entry was added that was composed of *only* a "space" - that meant *any* comment submitted was rejected (because they all have a space, somewhere).

As you add blacklist entries, please review every string or URL carefully. If they are overly broad, as in this case, a whole lot of legitimate comments will be blocked.

Also, please send me an email - or an email to the entire herd - as soon as you notice an odd behavior. Thanks!
