Have I been banned, or is "preview comments" simply not working?

Trying to add a comment to:

Hit "preview" and I get a "Preview Comment:" but no preview, and then the "Home About Archives MetaTalk Post Customize Search Etc " navbar.

Is this a bug, or by design?

If you were banned, you couldn't post to MeTa. Delete your cookies and try again.

Works fine for me. BlueTrain's right about possible browser trouble. Try flushing your cache & cookies, clear your history, reboot, and try again. If trouble persists, try posting to MeFi under a different browser to rule out any universal issue with your machine's settings and component classes.

Tried posting using both Mozilla and IE. Nogo.

Tried clearing cookies. Nogo.

Logged out explicitly. Cleared cookies. Explicitly allowed all MeFi cookies. Logged in. Works.

How odd.

p.s. now same thing is happening with MetaTalk. Same solution fixes it for now.
