"Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again."

I'm trying to post in this thread... I can preview, but when I try to post I just get "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again."... and I'm pretty sure my comment is not blank...

I think that happens if you try to fake a comment by someone else. something to do with that.

It's an old bug when comments look spoofed. I've been meaning to change it something more descriptive like "you're trying to spoof the way comments appear, go back and remove the small tag" instead. We'll go ahead and do that now.

Yeah, I didn't mean to sound accusatory there, I figured you were just trying to quote someone. I'm surprised this doesn't come up more often actually.
