#30538 new defect

Unable to comment on The Independent Newspaper

Description

I used to be able to comment on The Independent newspaper using Tor,
www dot independent dot co dot uk, but now, when I try to comment, the comment button is disabled. I don't know if it's Noscript or something else, I just know the button is disabled if I use Tor.

Also, Tor is no longer able to reach gocomics dot com for some reason. I suppose they might have gone to an anti-spam package that blocks all Tor exit nodes, but there is no 'Spam. Blocked' error message, just 'unable to connect'

Gocomics works for me if I switch the circuits for a bit. It does indeed seem to be the case that they don't like some exit nodes.

What do I have to do to reproduce the comment issue?

This isn't about gocomics, it's about The Independent newspaper, www dot independent dot co dot uk
If one has an account and tries to comment, one cannot. Before, there was a 'Join the discussion' button, but now it's disabled (and so greyed and hard to see). If I log in, I can upvote other comments, but cannot comment or reply. Disabling NoScript does not allow comments.
