is this a glitch of the new comment program?

I'm using the new comment feature and left a notice about KosAbility in Open Thread 4 Night Owls tonight and got the strangest replies. I wasn't at all sure what these people were saying but know it wasn't meant harshly. It was obviously joking around. Then MTmofo says the comment is blank. Of course it isn't to me because I wrote it and posted it.

    It's there - I can see it in the source code. It seems as though you somehow created a table in the comment and it got stuck in one cell, and then the table didn't get completed.

    Hoping the no-format part of this is working...

    <div class="media-body comment-inner">
              <div class="meta comment-row">
                <div class="comment-cell">
                  <div class="comment-author pull-left">
                    <span class="author-name" data-original-title="" title=""><a href="/user/Besame" id="1018928">Besame</a></span>
                  </div>
                  <a href="/comments/1853461/73703121#comment_73703121" class="comment-time pull-left">April 26 · 10:17:45 PM</a>
                </div>
              </div> <!-- .meta.heading -->
              <div class="comment-row">
                <div class="comment-text comment-cell">
                  <span class="dk5_subject_text">Please join us at KosAbility on Sunday April 28 <a href="#" class="unfold-comment">…</a></span>
                  <span class="comment-title"></span>
                  <p class="is-empty-p"><span style="text-align:start">Please join us at KosAbility on Sunday April 28 at 4pm PT when wilderness voice will share “A Tale Of Two Studies Leads To A Deeper Understanding Of Cardiovascular Disease”</span></p>

                </div>

    Weird. wilderness voice had written the comment text in an email to me and
    I just copy/pasted it into the comment box - there was no table in his
    email just those lines of text. I could read it when using the new comment
    program. I went back to elfling's diary today and clicked back to the old
    comment program and then back to OT4NO and my comment was blank.

    Yes, it was a real glitch and we think we caught the culprit. Thanks for raising the alarm about it.
