Don't know if anyone else noticed this or not, but in the new 2.0 version, if you have a post with no comments, the link to comments will have a "#respond" hooked on the end of it.
I'm sure I'm not the only one whose theme didn't have the page bookmark "#respond" in the comments template...
so I added this just before the comment form:
When people click on the comments link when an article has no comment, they will be sent to the comments form of the article. Before they would just be sent to the post page, since #respond didn't exist before.
just an fyi, in case someone else runs into this.
