I have a weird thing that started happening today.
First, I updated the Sharebar and another plugin (can't remember the name of the second because I've since deleted both in my troubleshooting attempts.)
I added some Google Plus code to the header and function files.
Now, after all that (so you think it would be related), comments have stopped working on my blog, http://www.makeupfiles.com/. When you try to comment on a post, it never shows up. Not on the page or in the comments section of admin. Not as spam. Then I receive the comment emails, but now they are blank. They look like this:

I looked up this problem on the boards and it appears that plenty of other people have had this problem over the last 5 years, and no one has ever found a solution. Hopefully today will be the day!
Here are the steps I took to try to solve it:
- Disabled Sharebar and the other plugin
- Removed the Google Plus code I'd added earlier
- Disabled all plugins
- Deleted Sharebar and the other plugin, just in case
- Changed my theme to Twenty Twelve and back
None of that worked. I'm think that it might just be a fluke and that it has nothing to do with the changes I made earlier in the day. Any suggestions?
