Comments Trouble? You Have To Use The New Comments Thingy
More Comments Trouble: Comments Are Porn!

I'm getting a lot of questions about this. Someone just wrote to say my commenters are much better than me and the big draw.

The old "Comments" button does not work and probably will never work again.

You must use the New Comment Thingy button next to it to view comments.

And to post comments, you must include an email address, even if it's a fake one. The system will not post your comment without that -- and there's a glitch in the system that doesn't even tell you why your comment didn't go through. (Usually you can page back to get the comment back, though, and just fill in an email address, then post it.)

Sorry about this. I've meant to remove the Comment button entirely in order to avoid the continuing confusion, but I'm not quite sure where it is, or if deleting it will cause unforeseen problems.

Use the New Comment Thingy, please. The old commenting system is disabled forever.

Update: Phin is fixing this stuff for me. What a great guy.

Here's another thing: Many of you complain you get porn warnings about the comments when at work or otherwise using some sort of safe-search system.

Here's what's going on: The commenters are frigging filthy and they activate all the porn tripwires.

No, not really.

The new comments thingy takes you from this mu.nu domain to the minx.cc domain. Because comments are hosted on that domain.

But many "safe-search" systems have built in protections against links that take you to an unexpected domain. Or something. They don't like the fact you're clicking on mu.nu but the link takes you somewhere else, and they flag that as "likely porn."

I think a workaround for this is just to copy the new comments thingy link location and paste it in the URL, so you're going directly to the minx site, rather than being redirected along the way. Going there directly from your URL bar should, I think, stop the software from thinking this site is "phishing" you.

Incidentally, if you get a "phishing" warning -- that's due to this rubber-band-and-paper-clip comments patch we have too. A lot of browsers and safe-search software just doesn't like how clicking on mu.nu takes you to minx, and thinks it's a scam redirect.
