Paul Weimer discovered (thankfully) that commenting was still turned off on all posts since my domain hosting change. That was an oversight on my part. I forgot to change the setting back after the move. I have re-enabled commenting on new posts and have gone back and turned commenting off on all of the posts since the change. If you encountered the “comments are closed” on a post message, it was not because I didn’t want to hear from you, but because I forgot to turn the darn things back on.
I blame it on the ear infection.
And thanks to Paul for figuring it out.
