Update 11 Dec 08: Okay, I've restored it to how it used to be. So much for upgrading while something is still in beta. I really would like to offer the capacity for commenters to be notified of follow-up comments - I so appreciate that feature on other people's blogs. But it will have to wait a while. Thanks for your helpful comments while you typed blind.
1. The comment entry box is covered up by another box (the one with "Get a Profile Edit Profile" and "Activity on this blog, overall" written inside it), so the commenter cannot see what they are typing! Then when I hit preview, the same thing happens - still cannot see the comment. Then when I save the comment, finally it shows up. This will not be generally helpful! You have to type & publish your comment blind.
2. Secondary problem: At the bottom of the post page, there is no space between "Get a Profile" and "Edit Profile" so it looks like "Get a ProfileEdit Profile" which is confusing.
3. Also, for the people with Profiles already, their name is written before their comment, and then their name AGAIN, with a link to their profile (with no space between the two instances of their name). This is confusing and clumsy-looking.
I am using Safari (and Camino). What web browser are you using and do you have these same problems? If so, you'll have to type your comment carefully and jump into the void when you submit your comment to let me know. If they don't fix this soon I'll try to go back to how it was before.
By the way, had a great weekend visiting my 92-year-old grandfather for the first time in 3.5 years. It was lovely to see him and to let the kids update their memories of their only surviving great-grandfather.
So glad my mom could join us, and that we got to have lunch with David's cousins as well. And we had a Mexican dinner and got to shop for basics at Old Navy - what a bunch of treats this weekend.
Thanks be to God, the fount of all blessings.

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Commenting problems:
By the way, you have to click in the light gray boxbehind the "Activity" box and then you'll see the cursor blinking. If you type far enough on the line, you can see the right hand edge of your comment. I wonder how many typos I have made?

hmmm. here's my experience fyi...
I'm using Firefox.
I can only reply to your above comment. I couldn't just enter a comment. Tho clicking on the gray box behind the "activity box", it wouldn't do anything or give me a cursor.
I have to retype my info below (it's not stored like usual).
Hope they get the kinks out for you...

Thanks for the feedback, Susan! Wow, I can see myself typing now...that's nice. Sorry you had to retype your information. Since it doesn't work with Firefox either, I'll try to get it back to how it was before...hopefully I don't break things worse.
