Over the past year, several people have written to complain about my comments system not working. I’m all for comments & debate, so of course I didn’t like this state of affairs. But I could not for the life of me figure out why, as it worked fine for me whenever I signed in (of course). But when Étienne Cliquet sent me this interresting response to my post on origami (and complained about my broken system), I figured it was time to fix it so that we could continue our discussion in public.

Typically, it just took about a minute to find the problem: a stupid CSS error. I had written:

#email

...instead of:

li#email

Ooops. Sorry about that.
