Inordinately Proud

For the past week I have been unable to post comments at Irish's place.

I couldn't figure out why, because I couldn't remember changing anything.

Turns out I'd set an XSS cross-site setting to "always block" and that killed off his comment provider.

Resetting the XSS permissions in No-Script fixed the comments.

No-Script errs in the "shut it down and block" direction by design, so the pop-up alert for these cross-site things can get irritating.  Since I don't speak html, I can't read what the warning is telling me, so I tend to stab, "always block" to make it go away.

This marks the first time that's killed something I wanted to work.
