We have been getting messages from people who have been frustrated with WordPress because there are times when WordPress makes it difficult to post a comment. We value comments and are frustrated as well when this happens.
UPDATE: the best way to comment (even with no WordPress account) is that after typing in your comment, a window will come up to fill in my name, email, etc.: fill in the two pieces that are required: 1) your email and 2) your name – and then just that should be enough for you to be able to submit your comment.
If you have an account and are not able to post, the first thing to do is make sure you are signed into your WordPress account. Sometimes people have been inadvertently signed out. I had a situation where I had to re-sign in every day for a week until the problem eventually righted itself.
We have also found that sometimes we need to be patient. WordPress might not accept a comment at first try. If you wait a few hours and try again it will often go through.
I have noticed that WordPress glitches often run in groups so I imagine something is going on at their end.
We really want to read your comments, as does our audience, so if a problem arises, please be patient and try again.
