Okay, we've made a change that may help, but probably not in a self-healing way. That is, if you're having this problem (and now I'm having it too, which is why we have a diagnosis), it seems that Safari has cached some empty or broken files, (HTTP/2 is not yet the future) and is failing to get new ones. So, if you clear your cache, it SHOULD get new files and the problem shouldn't recur.
I'm going to leave my setup broken and see if it corrects eventually, and play in firefox for a while. Meanwhile, if anyone, after this message posts, has it start brand new, or again, PLEASE let me know that so we can look for other solutions.
Thanks everyone. I realize this has been very frustrating for all of us, and that includes staff.
I know you're getting hit from alot of different users. But, I first experienced the inability to post. Deleted the DKOS cookie and that worked for the past week. Today, I could post but all the doo-dads (Bold Italic, etc icons you get at the top of the box were gone). Delete cookie again. Problem solved. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed that deleting the cookie will keep working until a perm solution is found.

Safari is the problem. I had Firefox and Chrome installed yesterday, and both of them worked perfectly not just here at DailyKos, but also at Youtube where I had been having problems too with loading videos.
Just now, I cleared the "cache"...and I am now able to comment here.
Thanks for all the help and input.
Thanks, all, for the feedback, also. It'll be really helpful for us to know that you do not have to continue to clear the cache. Our working hypothesis is that one last clear, now that we've made an adjustment on our end, should do the trick, so we do want to know whether that is indeed the case.

Did you try deleting the Kos cookie? Windows responds to turning computer off after that and then sign into Kos using your password not from automatic retrieval. Everything connected to automatic stuff needs to be accessed up front not from past history. Anyway that is what I did many times over till my computer, an iPad finally accepted the new reality.
If the Kos gurus have something less obscure than the HAR files, hope they will let you know.
