wp-cache is caching prepopulated data in the comment fields (2 posts)

    Hello all-

    After a receiving a stern warning from my Web host, I've installed WP-Cache 2.0 on my WordPress 2.0.2 install to cut down on the amount of server resources I take up. Seems to be working like a charm, with one quirk. People who post comments to the blog have up to this point had their name/e-mail/URL information prepopulated as long as they stay on the same computer/browser. I don't let people sign up for accounts on my blog, so I'm assuming that this is done with a cookie of some kind -- I never made a conscious decision to activiate this functionality, so I guess it's just how WP works by default.

    Anyway, since I activated WP-Cache, commentors are seeing *other people's* name/e-mail/URL information prepopulated in their browser. This is obviously annoying, and, since I pledge not to expose people's e-mail addresses publically, somewhat alarming. Does anyone know how to prevent this from happening? Ideally I'd like to go back to the original situation, but if that's not possible with WP-Cache, I'd like to prevent any of this information from being prepopulated into the fields.

    Thanks in advance!
