I'm trying to comment on thread 55668. I can preview my comment, but not post it. Either I get "Your comment appears to be blank, go back and try again." or a Coldfusion error (inside).

Commenting on Ask and MeTa works (evidently). I am behind a lame firewall, if that helps diagnostics.

Are you attempting to post a humorous comment which contains within itself a carefully crafted fake comment?

Aha, that was it. I quoted in a wrong format.. (Nope it was not a jokey comment... Not even a particularly good comment)

Lesson for today: Never quote <small>Posted by ...</small>, children, even when in italics.

The error message could be a bit clearer, though.

Thanks cortex!
