I've been trying to add a comment to a paper but I keep getting a message saying there is an error and the comment cannot be added. I refreshed the page and tried to add the comment again and then I get the message, "duplicate comment detected, you've already added this." So I refreshed the page again to check the paper but there are no comments to be found.

So I then went to my papers page and it shows that there are comments. I've attached a photo for you to see the only place I can see that I've gotten comments.

However, there are no comments to be found on the paper itself. Please help!

Hi Paige - I'm not able to reproduce this on a sample paper, and I couldn't find the "I am the best writer in the world" paper from the screenshot (sadly! I was looking forward to reading it). Assuming you deleted it, could you set up another one and link to it here, so that I can test on a paper where the problem is predictably reproducible?

Yeah, no problem, it was a private paper but it should have worked since I added the reader to the paper. I was using this test account:

login: prattone
password: prattux

Feel free to login and try it with this account. I tried to add you as a reader but the closest I found to you was, Boone test 401. In the off chance that wasn't you, I wanted to spare Boone 401 the glory that is "the best writer in the world."

Here's a link to the paper if you are logged in as prattone:

Thanks Boone!

Thanks for the details, Paige!

It turns out that your comments were being flagged as spam. There are two bugs here:

1. Comment counts in the Paper Directory should not reflect non-approved comments
2. Comments from logged-in users should not be subject to spam filters

I'll work on these for the next release.
