slow commenting problem fixed!
Yea! It was an issue related to the anti-spam magic Movable Type has in play. Details and the fix are here, for those of you interested. I stumbled across this only accidentally, so other users of MT facing the same problem may be interested.
Anyway, commenting should zip right along now. Let me know if you continue to encounter any problems.
