I seem to be locked out of the comment section only in Mark Sumner's diary on Mitch McConnell's rules for impeachment. Would like some assistance. Thank you.

    I am having the same problem also, which has happened to me in the past. Just to note, it is only Mark Sumners diaries where I have this problem. TIA

    Yes, just Mark's diaries -- including his latest. Is anyone going to answer us?

    Hello. Sorry for the lag in replying. The holiday weekend generated quite a few new tickets in our inbox here.

    It's apparently a glitch of recent origin, and apparently it is affecting only users who are still relying on the old comment system.

    Is that so for all of you replying on this thread here at Help Desk?

    It would also be useful to have some specific links to stories where the comments are not loading for you, particularly since it seems that some posts are behaving properly while others are not. We have to be able to see/replicate the issue here to initiate the process for a fix. Knowing the browser/operating system you're on will also help.

    Lastly, for now: Clearing your browser's cache can sometimes do wonders, especially if the cause at base is something to do with a conflict in saved site data. Also, opening a problematic story in a private/incognito window can often be diagnostic, because that mode generally disables all extensions and add-ons, many of which do not play well with our site code.

    Thanks for the additional troubleshooting help and information.

    Thanks for the reply. My problem started today in all of Mark's diaries (only). As soon as I figure out how to clear my cache I will do so. I'm on the old comments because of all the problems I had with the new system. That doesn't explain why only Mark's diaries are affected though.

    OMG!!!  How thoughtful.  Thank you so much.  I'll be following your link when I finish listening to the Senate kangaroo court.  You are always so positive and helpful.
