hey, I solved this today...I had been using "Custom" for prolinks...instead of the default....sooo, I tried (in fustration) the "default" for that....and now, everything in regards to comments works (no more weird double name pop up like I mentioned above.)
However, I now have a new problem I will paste elsewhere after i research if the answer is already here...(I cannot post!! When I hit "publish" or save or save/edit, it says: "R U Sure you want to navigate away? You'll lose everything!" Grrrr. Now, I have no clue what made THAT change!!!! feel free to email me if you know.
Thank you for your help.
(BTW, they do have 2 different http://'s as you asked in your question....)
