Comments don't show

Comments on news stories do not show up. I have tried both Opera and Firefox. The only thing I can think of is my hosts file, but I don't know why the comments would be affected. I am also running a program that intercepts any requests and gives the name of the referring URL and also places a small blue bar wherever whenever there is anything trying to access a site listed in the hosts file. Neither of them set off any flags, so it's acting as if there is nothing being blocked by the hosts file.

So, I don't get it.

If there is something that might be being blocked by the hosts file, does anyone know the address so I can delete it from the hosts file?

Thanks for any help.

Maybe it's an issue on the Disqus server's end? See this thread: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=87364

Seem to be working fine for me. Keep in mind that Disqus comments require third party javascript to be run from the Disqus web site. If you're using any browser security settings or plugins that prevent scripts from running, you'll see nothing.
