Comment Double-Posting Problems?

Posted by DavidNYC

I've been noticing more double-posted comments on the site than usual. Things may be loading a tiny bit slower due to the BlogAds, so I just ask for your patience when you hit the "Post" button. If you are getting any genuine errors when you are posting, please let me know in the comments.

An error occurred...

In an effort to combat malicious comment posting by scripts, I've enabled a feature that requires a weblog commenter to wait a short amount of time before being able to post again. Please try to post your comment again in a short while. Thanks for your patience.

This is the message it gave to me when I double posted.

Ah, that looks like one of the TypePad "features" they installed on the server side to block comment spam. If you get an error message like that, I think the thing to do is first check the thread to see if your original comment actually got posted.
