I've been trying to post a comment in the Bento4Japan Giveaway article, and I keep getting redirected to the preview page (which doesn't actually show a preview of anything), sometimes with an error message. (At first I tried without logging in, not realizing I'd been logged out; at one point it asked me to enter a Captcha image, which gave me the error message -- after that, I logged in and tried again, but it keeps showing the preview page instead of posting, even though I'm hitting "post comment.")

I don't want to keep trying in case my attempts are going through, despite the fact that I keep getting redirected to the "submit comment" page. I'm not using any html tags in my post at all -- I even took out the apostrophes since the error message I've seen is "invalid form" (or something similar -- sorry, I didn't write it down). Anyway, my apologies if these multiple attempts have gone through. If they haven't, what could be the issue? I'm using Firefox 3.6.16 (weird, since I thought I was using Firefox 3.8 last week) on Windows XP.

P.S. The preview worked fine for this forum post. Here's hoping at least this post will go through.

I decided to try one more time in a new tab, while still logged in. This time, the preview worked, as did the submission (it redirected me to the article page, too). I still don't know what I was doing wrong the first time. Again, my apologies if any of the other attempts went through.

Hi beach, when something goes wrong when trying to comment, try clearing your browser cache...that usually works I have found. (The cache does expire after a certain period, but you can force-clear it as it were when you are in a hurry.)
