Comments broken on perlfoundation [UPDATED]

[ #38936 ]

I wanted to comment on Jonathan's excellent Hague grant proposal, writing something like this:

I'd just like to chime in on Moritz' praise of Jonathan. It has been exhilarating to observe all the progress so far. Looking forward to more of the same.

But the comment function is broken, telling me: "Comment Submission Error - Your comment submission failed for the following reasons: Invalid request"

First off: there's nothing invalid about my request. Actually, it's more of an opinion than a request. ☺

Second: it seems that the comment function is broken on perlfoundation. I've emailed rdice about it, so it'll hopefully be fixed RSN. In the meantime, I'll post this so I don't forget what I wrote. [Update: rdice++ replied quickly, and in helping him debug the issue, I discovered that turning on Javascript for that page resolved the issue. I.e. nothing broken outside of my browser.]

More features in Rakudo!

  • If a website doesn't work for submitting comments and instead it produces weird, not to the point error messages, I'd still call it broken.

    It really can't be much of a problem to build it thus that it works with Javascript disabled, in the oldschool "form submit" mode. Lacking that, it should at the very least mention (for example, as text between noscript tags) that comments won't work with Javascript disabled.

    Anything less, is broken.
