Well my 'finger crossing' was to no avail.
I can safely say that as far as not getting comments goes, my problem has not
been solved after all. I am currently at
twelve comments to my own journal that I have not received - I haven't checked any comments that I've left in other people's journals.
The only bit of brightness in all this is knowing that I am not alone; I know of two other people (and I'm sure there must be more) who also aren't getting all of their comments.
I have now filled out a Support Request
, as advised by the LJ PTB. I shall await a reply and hopefully a satisfactory resolution.
So in the meantime if I don't reply to something that I should, rest assured I am not ignoring you.
