I've officially disabled comments on this blog, even though that setting apparently does not apply itself to previous posts, making it look like I need to go into every previous post & manually close comments for each post...which isn't practical because it means going through hundreds of posts.
So older posts will apparently still show the comments enabled along with the option of commenting, even though officially, they've been disabled.
I apologize in advance if anyone gets confused or frustrated by that bug.
Anyway...nothing happened; just noticed I wasn't being consistent with my new mostly-no-comments comment policy, so thought it best to disable them altogether.
If you want to know more about why I scaled back on the comment section in the first place, please see this post:
