I had inserted Mark Jaquith's patch and yet the page worked but my

have posts in my site.
?feed=comments-rss2 is supposed to show the *comments* feed (it does in
2.0.x, and with my patch, it does in 2.1). Your feed is blank, which
means you must have no comments.
I happened to notice that the same behaviour is inherent in
several CMS's, but while it's reasonable to return a blank
feed (e.g. this does not add clutter to aggregators), it
would be nice to have some anchor/placeholder if no item is
found... in comments/posts/category/search/other... Topix
does that, for example...
I know this might lead to problems and violate some rules,
but I just find it hard to subscribe to feeds that are empty
and thus invalid. Maybe an itch that's never worth
