Well, the support I got from Godaddy for the comments problem amounted to:

Yeah, we deleted your database, why don't you restore it yourself from your 36 day old backup. Have a nice day.


Posts and comments from 8 August through the present are gone. I will be trying to restore what I can from google cache and the emails I get when anybody makes a comment, but it's a manual process, so bear with me here..

  3. My question is, why did they delete it to begin with?

  4. Thanks folks!

    I think I have been able to rescue all of the missing posts from either google cache, or my local browser cache. If you see a post with weird keyword highlighting, it came from google cache :-).

    Currently I am entering the missing comments one by one by hand. This will probably take a number of days.

    As to why all this -- apparently they were moving my hosting to a different server and the database got lost somewhere along the line...
