This is weird, but I have noted that when I post a comment (and the loooong delay for the comment to be posted begins), I can wait just a few seconds; click back to the Home Page; and my comment has been posted. The freeze seems to be only at the blog itself…apparently the comment gets posted, but the blog screen does not clear for a minute or two.
Give it a try. I’ve done it a half dozens times lately…and it has worked every time.
Goddam site is getting on my nerves with the delays…and I know it has for lots of others. So if this little trick works for everyone, it may be the thing that keeps us all sane while navigating the site.
