I deactivated the plugin and my comments are back.
Now I can relax and enjoy my evening. Carry on!

I’m trying not to cry over spilt milk. Right now it appears that all of my comments, from four years of blogging, are lost somewhere in the dark hole that is the internet.
And also. Bear with me if you are trying to comment. I switched to the DISQUS commenting plugin because it provides nested comments, so you can see who is replying to you, and it also should email the comment to the person being replied to. But it seems that right now some people are seeing wordpress commenting and some disqus. I’m getting comments from both sources. So if you don’t see your comment, I am probably getting it via email. And I’m holding out hope that my 4 years worth of comments will be restored at some point.
For now, I’m filing this in the technology bites file.
