A couple of people have attempted to post comments and somehow the comments are not being accepted. Upon investigation, it appears that if you are logged in on a wordpress account, the comment you post disappears.
The workaround for now is to not be logged in to a wordpress account. Use some fake name and email id to post a comment. That comment will be held for moderation and I will approve it. I guess this problem is transitory and will get fixed soon.
This administratie post will self-destruct in a few days.
Update: It appears that if you use a gmail address in the email field, then wordpress “disappears” the comment.
