Just an fyi:
When trying to read someone’s hub my IE 8 browser had a compatibility view hissy fit and locked up. Tried twice and it happened twice; both times were when I tried to interact with the hub re: comments and/or rating it up.
There was a compatibility view MS update recently…
The hub was: http://hubpages.com/hub/A-Lost-Soul-My-Missing-Father
PS - I wasn't able to replicate this in my version of IE 8. Could you try emptying your cache, restarting and see if that solves the problem?
First the “bad” news…
I tried it again as instructed. And once again IE8 immediately tried to initiate compatibility view mode and once again refused to let me enter a comment.
The good news…
I went and downloaded the MS compatibility website list and HP is not on it.
I went to another hub and had no problem entering a comment and rating it up.
It’s that one particular hub that causes the problem (apparently uniquely to me).
As to what that problem is and whether it is worth pursuing…
IE9 is out soon, and I literally cannot wait. From a web developer perspective it is finally seeing Microsoft catch up to 8 years of advancements in other web browsing technologies, and I will finally be able to fully recommend CSS3 design on my clients websites.
You need to ditch IE... it sucks. Try Firefox or Chrome or Safari or anything else!
Unfortunately, too many people use IE to visit our hubs. So we always have to be sure that our hubs are IE compatible.
However, I neither dispute nor affirm the sucking part...
I agree. I have had trouble with IE 8. No trouble with Firefox other than slowness and too many tabs.

Every time I try to post a comment, the page flips up to the top and, when I scroll back down, the comment is still there, unposted. I've cleaned my cache, tried a different browser but no luck.

Received a few e-mails from followers that they were unable to post a comment to my latest Hub? When I look at the Hub everything appears to be normal but not one comment has been posted, which is unusual? ...

Does this happen to you? My newest post just had 5 comments and no views were recorded . How can this be?

There seems to be a new bug the last couple of days where I can't add a comment to a Q&A answer. Does anyone else have this problem? The comment field is there after each answer. But when I enter text...

Wow! What do you do when someone writes a hub attacking you personally because you deleted a comment they posted to your hub?
