Comment Problems?

OK, I know several people have complained that the commenting system here isn't remembering their name and other info, and I've seen that problem, myself. I mentioned the problem on enetation's user forum, and got the following response:

Hmm, interesting

We've got some cases where the 'logged in' redirection isn't happening possibly due to cookie problems and lost cookies.

None of the server side code has changed in the last 2 weeks and none of the web software has been altered. Very odd bug and given no changes, I'd have to say that it was browser based.

I'm not saying that the users have deleted their own cookies but it's possible that say an adaware package has deleted the cookies or possibly one of the recent automatic Microsoft IE upgrades that been the cause.

Now, I don't know if that's right or wrong. I do know that I'm using Netscape and not seeing the problem at the moment, and I can't now remember whether I ever saw the problem in Netscape at all, or just with IE (which I use at work). So, for people who happen to be leaving comments here, I wonder if you could tell me whether or not it seems to be remembering your info now (or does once you give it again, anyway), and, if not, which browser you're using. 'Cause I'm sort of mystified.
