OK, I'm an Evil Validator, so I can't resist: the 'Pings with Recent Comments' box says there was a comment in this Ping today @ 11:35:22, but there is NO COMMENT in this Ping yet. Furthermore, there is the header "Reader Comments", which otherwise only appears when there is at least one comment. I can't wait to learn the root cause of this bug. :-)

Terry -- The Pings with Recent Comments are sorted by the last modified date. I deleted an empty entry (but not the actual comment file -- call it laziness), hence the bug. :)

Terry, you saw nothing. Please move along. There was no comment. There was no time/date stamp. There is no spoon.

I, sort of, had the pleasure of witnesses a Ping being made so I knew what causes the phantom comment log. It's all kinds of behind-the-velvet-rope stuff.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
