There is a problem today with multiple diaries where READ comments keep coming back as UNREAD. This is quite annoying, particularly on popular diaries that receive lots of comments.

    The last time that happened to me (two days ago), I had two instances of the browser open and didn't realize it. You might try closing down and restarting your browser, just to see what happens. Otherwise, I suspect you'll have to wait until after the weekend for a reply.

    I am a software engineer so I always employ the typical troubleshooting steps. I have also seen this on two different computers today.

    This does happen on occasion and then typically the next day or the day after the problem goes away until the next time. :(

    Looks like the problem has cleared up now.

    I'm sorry, and I know it's frustrating. These intermittent errors are the worst.

    We have a lot of other projects in the hopper but I'll add this one to it. What is your setup again? Thank you.

    This happened to me too. Restarting my browser did not solve the problem either.
