going to wait a minute here and see if there's a time out.


ho dee da...whistle...


This is Shahryar, by the way. I'm sort of convinced this will work and then when shaharazade tries it she'll get the same error messages. It's like when you take your car in because you heard a funny noise but then no one can find it so you drive home and it starts up again as you pull into your driveway.

It's probably a dumb question but

why can't disabled rich-text be the default format for posting comments?

When posting a comment and then making revisions I see that "Disable rich-text" has reappeared. Unless you get it exactly the way you want it on the first draft it takes longer than it should in order write and post a comment.

Is there some reason we need rich-text? Could it possibly be eliminated?
