AUGH LIVEJOURNAL WTF?

I'm attempting to post a comment in someone's LJ and I'm now getting an LJ error in what looks like Chinese?!
收集你登记数据的cookie程序失踪了吧?


SO: [livejournal.com profile] wordsofastory, I'm attempting to comment on your Game of Thrones post with this (no spoilers, but I won't guarantee any comments made to this post will be spoiler-free):
I'll direct you to this Fanfare thread at Metafilter for discussion of the beetle thing, and a couple of good interpretations. Alas, the thread is 300+ comments and I read them yesterday, and I'm attempting to get actual work done today, so I'm not diving back into there in order to point out the relevant comments (but I expect ctrl-F for "beetle" will point to them).
And now I go to log out of LJ and log back in and see if that fixes the error. ETA: It seems to have fixed it.

Does commenting on LJ work for me now?

Yes, it appears to. Logging out and logging back in seems to have reset the cookies.

Ha, well, thank you for all the effort! I seem to have gotten the comment without problem now, at least.

:D Truth be told, I started by pasting it into a blank post to get it out of my clipboard so I could copy the error message into Google Translate to see what it said (and to confirm the language as best I could), and things just kind of went from there.

I just want to know why I got the error message in Chinese!
