I tried to leave a comment on a story (http://jmsc.hku.hk/hkstories/content/view/101/70/), but it seemed that it didn't work.

Thanks for posting the comment Sonya! It's there now. The comments are moderated on that site to keep out spam and pornography.

I too could not comment. After submit script yields "permission denied" error, and the icon just keep spinning...

Rebecca MacKinnon

Thanks Charles. When did you post the comment? We do have a moderation system. Sonya's comment did go through. I can check whether there is some other problem.

Maybe your comments are being censored out...

MF, I know for a fact that you succeeded in posting comments.

MF, R's reputation is not in question here. I believe it's strictly a technical issue.

R, the site never said it accepted my comment, IE just give a script error (yellow triangle at lower left) and the spinner just keeps spinning.

Charles Liu

Okay R, I just tried again. The script error persists as of 5/11/2007 10:30am PST:

Line: 102
Char: 6
Error: Permission denied
Code: 0

thanks for letting me know. there is clearly a bug that needs some time to troubleshoot...


Hey Rebecca,

I find this very interesting, with Malaysia going to celebrate 50 years of nationhood this coming August 31, this entry has somehow inspired me to do something like this too!

Furthermore, I'm quite amazed by the facts found on the HKStories, especially the growing South Asian community in HK!

Keep up the good work!
