Wordpress, while trying to post a comment here. My browser must be wicked.

The culprit should be one of the plug-ins on that site (probably WP-Cache), but not WordPress itself.

Did you browse on your Mac or the N95?

Happens to me all the time whenever I try to post a comment to that site from my workplace computer (strictly during breaks, of course). So far I assumed it had something to do with DW's proxy setup which routes HTTP requests through two IP addresses alternatingly - which in turn seems to be enough to confuse WordPress. But maybe there is a different problem. I'll switch off WP cache for a test.

This doesn't make the error message less stupid because the problem doesn't have anything to do with the browser's user agent string.

Seems to be working now.

If I recall correctely, a normal proxy setup with 2 proxy's to distribute the load would keep the running http session going over one of the two proxy's - it confuses the hell out of firewalls (aka denied!) if you change between two ip's going to the same server with the same session id...
